BREAKING: Justice Department will not criminally prosecute NYPD cop Daniel Pantaleo who killed Eric Garner 5 years ago. Garner was killed with an unlawful chokehold that was taped and viewed by the entire nation. This is a gross injustice.
Since his death, Eric Garner’s daughter — Erica Garner— became an outspoken activist against police violence. She fought every day in the hopes that she would see justice for her father. She died on 12/30/17. themarshallproject.org/witnesses?utm_…
NYPD cop Daniel Pantaleo who killed Eric Garner w/ a banned chokehold is still on NYPD payroll. After Garner’s death, his salary spike to 120K while on desk duty.

Ramsey Orta, who filmed the choking death of #EricGarner, will be imprisoned until Dec 2019 and has been held in solitary confinement.
My heart breaks for Gwen Carr, mother of Eric Garner, who has been tireless and relentless in calling for justice and speaking out against police brutality. She took the tragedy of losing her son and helped fuel a movement alongside other grieving mothers of color.
We will never resolve the crisis of police brutality that we face in our country until we hold bad actors accountable. Cops like Daniel Pantaleo kill with impunity.

Today’s announcement by DOJ sends a dangerous message to cops who kill without basis that they are above the law.
