NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo, who put Eric Garner in a fatal chokehold in 2014, has been fired.
Daniel Pantaleo's use of a fatal chokehold on Garner in 2014 sparked a nationwide outcry.
Judge Rosemarie Maldonado has recommended that Officer Daniel Pantaleo be fired from the NYPD for his "reckless" use of the banned maneuver.
A lieutenant apparently tried to reassure officers after the 2014 chokehold death of Garner. “We were effecting a lawful arrest.”
Officer Daniel Pantaleo has a longer history with wrongdoing than we knew.
The fight over grand jury secrecy continues.
