Eric Garner, a resident of New York, was not long ago killed by the New York Police on suspicion of having attempted to sell singles.

Singles are cigarettes, sold individually. People who can't afford a full pack of cigarettes can buy singles. Brick and mortar merchants hate purveyors of singles, and have been pressuring the police to crack down.

People make their own jobs because they can’t get regular work. No one loses when someone breaks out a pack of smokes and sells them as singles. The tax was paid when the pack was purchased. Why should it be paid twice?

If Eric Garner was selling singles, he should have been left alone.
