What are they protesting about?

Re “Kings notes” (Sports, Dec. 12): I attended the Kings game when most of the players wore warm-up T-shirts stating: “I Can’t Breathe.” I doubt that any of these players, nor the many other NBA players wearing similar T-shirts, have a clue what led to the grand jury’s decision not to indict a New York police officer in the death of Eric Garner.

Former NBA commissioner David Stern would have prevented such antics. How about a T-shirt that states: “I Can Breathe Because I Obey The Law”?
