Emerald Snipes Garner mobilized more than 140,000 people to call for the firing of the police officer who killed her father, Eric Garner. Last week the @NYPD announced that Daniel Pantaleo would lose his job.
Chief Terence Monahan acknowledged the drop in arrests since the firing of Daniel Pantaleo in the Eric Garner case.
The Garner family is also filing a freedom of information request demanding public access to exhibits and court transcripts from Officer Daniel Pantaleo’s trial.
Pantaleo used an illegal chokehold to kill Eric Garner. It’s technically prohibited. Yet New York cops say that his firing signifies that they now can’t do their jobs to the fullest extent? Well, what did you consider your job to be, then?
WATCH: Emerald Gardner, the daughter of Eric Garner, reacts to news that administrative judge recommends that NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo should be fired. “We’ve waited 5 years... Commissioner O’Neill, fire Pantaleo.”
The Justice Dept. will not bring federal charges against the police officer who held Eric Garner in an apparent chokehold, reports @nytimes . The NYPD bans chokeholds. Examiners say it partly caused Garner's death. The officer, Daniel Pantaleo, still has his job.
Eric Garner's killer will not be charged. The U.S. citizen who filmed the killing, Ramsey Orta, faces up to 50 years in jail. NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo has been punished only by being demoted to desk duty. He walks free among us.
Today is the fourth anniversary of the killing of Eric Garner, a 43 year old father who died after he was put in a chokehold by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo. The epidemic of police killing unarmed Black men without accountability continues today. #BlackLivesMatter
