Thanks for the Iran report. We as a country need to see that Iran is a country of people just like us. Working hard, loving family and friends. So much blame has been put on Iran when we were the ones who broke an International treaty that was working out fine for everyone, then Trump cancels it only because it was negotiated by the Obama Administration.

That NYPD officer should've faced murder charges .

The officer was clearly in the wrong... My God they had him handled and the man was begging to just breathe. The officer AND officers around him had ample opportunity to let up and still have the situation under control. What has me shaking my head in disbelief is after all this time and clear video they still want to defend their actions.

I believe the Iranians across the board. Trump is a proven liar-about everything. Iran will get even for what trump has caused. They will pick their opportunity I believe.

The "American GOOD OLD BOYS WHITE SUPREMACY MENTALITY ", is being exposed and the world is waking up to the EVILS Raping humanity. Iran, China and Putin are brave enough to push back the MEGA IDEOLOGY.

I hate seeing that video of Eric Garner 😢 The _least_ NYPD could have done is fire the officer. Just horrible all the way around. Personally, I think he should've faced charges.

These unfulfilled white guys are just giving up on life! They claim white this and that, but the real reason is they just can't adjust to Society! Too much competition for everything!

Great reporting tonight NBC!
I really feel heartbroken for the Garner family. The whole video shows a man allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes, (not drugs) lost his life due to the police mobmentality. In no way did he deserved to die because he chose to sell cigarettes, instead of just being bummed off. Just stand in any street and it goes on everyday n everywhere.
This was a total miscarriage of justice, in so many levels...
I don't want to live in American society. I enjoy Canadian benefits too much.
The arrogance of imposing such punishing sanctions on the people of Iran, is deplorable. It doesn't hurt the politicians, it hurts the everyday people who are living n dying by the crushing costs of everyday life..
From the outside looking in; I'm absolutely stunned by the arrogance of the American policies and jurisdiction to other countries... It hurts my heart that the, "greatest country on everyday!". Has little tolerance or understanding the fellowship of man.

Really? Iran? I'd travel to Iran before I'd ever travel to N. Korea!

They're not saying the US threatened sanctions if the Iranian foreign minister would not travel to Washington. They are saying what any proud country would say, that they will not negotiate with the US under the pressure of US chauvinism in the form of sanctions. Trump "understands that, " but his actions belie his words.
