This comes as the family of Eric Garner, who was killed by a fatal police chokehold in Staten Island in 2014, has voiced outrage over new reports that the NYPD officer who killed Garner has received a 20 percent pay hike over the last two years. NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo reportedly earned nearly $120,000 last year. He’s been on desk duty since placing Eric Garner in the fatal police chokehold, but he does not face criminal charges. Thursday would have been Eric Garner’s 46th birthday.
