Secure Justice For Eric Garner

Because I have a cousin that was brutality beaten and kicked upside his head for literately walking in Dearborn MI on a public street minding his own business at 1:30 am. There was a silent blue code "he's a fun one" and he was called the "N" word as he was being brutally assaulted face down on hard cement and rocks. He was ridiculed, and refused medical treatment, He had bogus made up charges placed on him, saying he was drunk, my cousin whom has comprehension disabilities, is from the deep rural area of the south, he chews tobacco, has a beer every blue moon, and does not drink alcohol, no breath test was ever given, they even tried to have him placed in a mental institution because he was asked a question of did he know what the prosecutors job was, and he told the judge he knew but he just couldn't say the right words, but he knew he was not on his side. They carried out this case for over 1.5 years, even had his attorney that was retained, tried to get him to plead guilty, and the city's attorney tried to bribe me asking me if i would sign a consent saying I would not bring a suit against the city of dearborn they would drop the charges. My opinion is any law enforcement from lawyers to judges whom does not uphold the law has broken the law, and should be prosecuted the exact same way as a criminal, Go to jail, do not pass go, and jail meaning prison, not federal but criminal
