Garner Killed by FDA

Just before Mr. Garner died while being arrested, Mayor Bloomberg and his police commissioner ordered the NYPD to "crack down" on sales of loose cigarettes. 

So happens that Obozo's FDA made such sales into a Federal crime.

...An FDA rule issued on June 22, 2010 — well within the Obama era, under a president who has unleashed bureaucracy on the entire country — mandates that individual cigarettes cannot be sold without their original packaging....

And of course, such sales are also a tax-issue; Bloomberg & Co. couldn't extract their pound of tax-flesh from such as Mr. Garner.

Think about that.  While the arrest was the proximate cause of Mr. Garner's death, FDA and Bloomberg were the remote causes.

Nice to know how Gummint helps out the little guy, eh?
