In New York City, Ramsey Orta, who filmed the police killing of Eric Garner, is slated to go to jail for four years—making him the only person at the scene of Eric Garner’s killing who will serve jail time. On Wednesday, Orta took a plea deal on weapons and drug charges. He says he has been repeatedly arrested and harassed by cops since he filmed the fatal police chokehold nearly two years ago.
