[06] Following a New York grand jury's decision Wednesday not to indict an NYPD officer involved in the apparent choke-hold death of Eric Garner, Stevie at his performance at Seattle's Key Arena, spoke up asking the audience, "Can you believe that within one month, two grand juries — secret grand juries — declined to indict two policemen for the killing of two black men?

After the ceremony, Stevie told reporters: I feel truly honored to receive this wonderful Medal of Freedom. My receiving it is saying to me, by the president, be forever committed to this that you’ve started, continue to try your best to encourage people to reach higher ground. But it is also a statement to me that says this is something that you’re wearing that says you’re committed for the rest of your life to fighting for the freedom of other people—freedom where race is not an issue, where everyone is respected as a family. The freedom of accessibility for those who have disabilities, that there’s nowhere in the world that they can’t be able to go and have a way of it being accessible for them. Freedom for health care, I feel that we need to have health care in this country. We have to have education. There’s no reason for illiteracy anywhere in this country or in the world. So anything that people are not free to be able to do and be appreciated and recognized, to think that in 2014 that we still have a condition where a person’s color is treated with disrespect and not being honored. We’re all made from the same creator.
