Eric Garner Dies After NYPD Cop Puts Him in a Chokehold

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.

“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.

Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.

“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.

She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.

Quote:
A New York City police officer involved in the arrest of a man who died in custody after being placed in an apparent chokehold has been stripped of his gun and badge and placed on desk duty, police said Saturday.

Officer Daniel Pantaleo, an eight-year NYPD veteran, and an officer who has been with the force for four years were both taken off the street after the death Thursday of 43-year-old Eric Garner on Staten Island, a borough south of Manhattan, police said.

The department would not identify the second officer but said he would retain his gun and badge while on desk duty. The reassignment is effective immediately and will remain in effect while Garner's death is being investigated, police said.

Garner's wife was overcome with grief at a rally in his honor Saturday. Esaw Garner, 46, burst into tears and was escorted from the rally at the Rev. Al Sharpton's National Action Network headquarters in Harlem.

"This is going to be a real test to see where policies are in the city now and whether the change that we feel occurred has occurred," Sharpton said at the Saturday rally that drew hundreds of people.

Garner's death on Friday has prompted an investigation by the Staten Island District Attorney's office and caused Mayor Bill de Blasio to postpone a vacation while he talks with community leaders.

A passer-by captured the interaction between Eric Garner and police on video, and the tape shows Garner saying at least eight times "I can't breathe," as police appear to push his head into the ground. The 6-foot-3, 350-pound Garner, an asthmatic, later died.

Garner, who was black, was confronted by police trying to arrest him on suspicion of selling untaxed, loose cigarettes on a Staten Island sidewalk, authorities said. Garner denied the charges and refused to be handcuffed before one of the officers placed him in what Police Commissioner William Bratton said appeared to be a chokehold,

Re: Eric Garner Dies After NYPD Cop Puts Him in a Chokehold

look, at the end of the day if you got nothing to hide then simply cooperate with the police. Oh all he did was break up a fight hey! well what do we actually know about what really happened people besides the commentary and hear say. unless you have worked directly in a hostile environment, dealing with violence and criminals every day and you could resolve every scenario perfectly with text book precision then dont be so judgemental on the very people who uphold the laws that govern your civil liberties in life. unfortunately shit happens people & without those brave members who work in law enforcement to protect us all from anarchy. their would be a lot more deaths a violence within our mainstream society. so get of your fucking pedestals and stop looking to point the pathetic figure of blame. Maybe if he wasn't waving his arms around aggressively he might not have been restrained (Looked quite threatening to me) or maybe if he wasn't overweight he might not have had so much trouble breathing..... See there is a few variables that can shift the accountability back on to the al-edged victim.! so stop being so pathetic always looking to blame the police.

Re: Eric Garner Dies After NYPD Cop Puts Him in a Chokehold

Being overweight has nothing to do with automatically being asthmatic.

If you have someone in a choke hold with others helping you and the guy says he can't breath you loosen up. This was over the top.

Re: Eric Garner Dies After NYPD Cop Puts Him in a Chokehold

Now this just goes to prove my piont Paul1985! the definition of Murdered: to kill (someone) unlawfully and with premeditation. Now does it look like those cops planned to kill that guy?
premeditation: the action of planning something (especially a crime) beforehand; intent.
So using the terminology (Murdered) to describe this scenario would be very inaccurate analysis. Thank god we dont have people like you as magistrates.. Because then some real poor judgements would be made. You cant even accurately describe this scenario in the comfort of your computer desk. so how would you assess and judge a situation under pressure like the police have to do?

Re: Eric Garner Dies After NYPD Cop Puts Him in a Chokehold

What a sad situation. The US police have been in the news a lot lately for the wrong reasons, shooting someone who resisted arrest and killing him, punching a woman, now this.
