    Three years after the NYPD killing of Eric Garner little reforms have stuck; McCain's surgery delays GOP health care vote.

    On this episode of "By Any Means Necessary" host Eugene Puryear is joined by Kerbie Joseph, activist with the ANSWER Coalition, to talk about the third year anniversary of the murder of Eric Garner, whether or not New York Policing has reformed, the high rates of NYPD surveillance of activists, and the other police murders that haven't been covered.

    In the second segment the show is joined by Sputnik News Analyst Bob Schlehuber to talk about the movement for black lives three years after the killing of Eric Garner, the continued alignment of liberal Democrats and neoconservative Republicans, and the fatal police shooting of an Australian woman in Minneapolis.

    In a special third segment host Eugene Puryear is joined by Dr. Bill Honigman, California State Coordinator, and Co-coordinator Healthcare as a Human Right Issue Organizing Team for Progressive Democrats of America to talk about the irony of Senator McCain's surgery delaying the health care vote, the efforts to push for a single payer health system in California, and activist efforts in Washington, DC to disrupt the GOP ACHA vote.

    Today's talking points touch on the conflicting alliances between the United States-Qatar-UAE-Saudi Arabia, the return of infamous Texas bathroom bill, and mental health in American prisons.
