Racists Come Out Of The Closet By Wearing "Breathe Easy, Don't Break The Law" T-shirts

Racists labeled themselves in America!

Milwaukee, Wisconsin - Blatant racists proud to show their true nature in America, they can all be identified by their message when wearing a "Breathe Easy, Don't Break The Law" (BEDBTL) t-shirts. Some of those wearing this type of t-shirts are just ignorant or don't actually realize that it's a phrase created by Jason Barthel who owns South Bend Uniform and a police corporal in Indiana to mock the last words of a dying victim, Eric Garner, an Afro-American while being held on an illegal chokehold and killed by Daniel Pantaleo, a White NYC Police Officer just for allegedly selling illegal cigarettes in the streets of New York City. The creator of the racist BEDBTL t-shirt has argued that it was made to support law enforcement, but in reality Justice for Garner activists believe that it was Barthel's idea to promote racism within law enforcement.
In the latest use of the BEDBTL t-shirt, Milwaukee County Supervisor Deanna Alexander posted on her Twitter account that she bought herself a BEDBTL t-shirt after three other Afro-American supervisors wore t-shirt's saying "I Can't Breathe" Garner's last words as he was killed by Pantaleo. The Garner phrase is used to call for justice for Garner. Officer Pantaleo was not charged or fired for killing Garner and using an illegal chokehold prohibited by the NYC Police Department.
The message Supervisor Alexander is actually sending is, that if you break the law, you will be killed without due process. She says, that she bought it to support law enforcement and was not intended to be racist.
Shame on Supervisor Alexander, she should know better. If she really is supporting law enforcement, than she should say it and not use a phrase used to mock a victim of an illegal chokehold that claimed a life. Anyone using the BEDBTL phrase is racist just as Alexander is projecting openly or discreetly and is part of the national problem involving the use racist beliefs to enforce the law unequally. Racism has no business in law enforcement, especially when officers are sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution, state Constitutions and laws.

"I support good cops, not law breaking cops!"
