NYPD Holds Disciplinary Hearing for White Officer Who Killed Eric Garner in 2014

HeadlineMay 14, 2019

In New York City, a disciplinary hearing is underway for a white police officer who killed unarmed African-American Eric Garner in 2014 by putting him in a chokehold and refusing to let go even as Garner repeatedly gasped “I can’t breathe.” Officer Daniel Pantaleo never faced criminal prosecution after a grand jury decided not to indict him. He has remained on the police force but could lose his job if found guilty of violating NYPD procedures, which ban the use of chokeholds.
