Cops Choke Staten Island Father to Death

Yesterday in Staten Island, a 400-pound man passed away after one cop put him in a chokehold and other cops proceeded to slam his head against the pavement. The brutality was caught on video and submitted to the NY Daily News.

The Daily News reported that the man’s name is Eric Garner. He is a 43-year-old dad to six children who had bad asthma. However, that did not stop cops from essentially choking the life out of him and slamming his head into the pavement. According to witnesses, Eric screamed “I can’t breathe!” repeatedly after multiple NYPD officer took him down due to resisting being handcuffed.

Shortly after, Garner stopped his struggle with the cops, and looked to be unconscious. Only then did cops call paramedics to the scenes. (You can count on cops to worry about your health after the fact.)

What makes the story even worse is that Eric Garner’s wife, Esaw, did not receive any details from the police until she went to the hospital to identify her husband’s body. According to the police, Eric Garner wasn’t even armed. The NYPD said Garner had a stem of past arrests for selling untaxed cigarettes, and they observed him selling said cigarettes which caused them to attempt an arrest. In the video, the bystander filming says Garner was being pressed by cops, despite stopping a fight moments prior.

With so many witnesses to Garner being choked to death by the cops, along with discomforting footage of the takedown, one can only hope that those cops are brought to justice.
