“But, Chris, this all misses the point!” the radio host continued. “What was Eric Garner doing? He was selling cigarettes! Loose cigarettes! And the police in New York, because they’re so eager for tax collection, what is being done here with regard to taxes and the state’s desire to collect them no matter what — how many cops were descended on that situation for cigarettes? How many people smoking marijuana did the cops pass by and ignore on the way to Eric Garner?”
“I think the real outrage here is that an American died while the state is enforcing tax collection on cigarettes, this is just absurd! People talk about the left, people want a big state, people want a powerful state. Well, here it is.”
