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.
Maybe one day, we white people may escape from our self-imposed hermetically sealed worlds that cut us off from the realities of our neighbors of color, a day when we become fluent in the multiple languages of "race."
I saw drones and battle tanks; I could very well have been in a war zone. I guess, in a sense, I was. I was in a space where large groups of Black lives were gathered in a system that is designed to respond to Black lives with violence. I know that I speak for Ms. McSpadden and Mr. Brown Sr. when I tell you to never stop fighting, and that we are grateful.
One Officer Was Indicted For Murdering Sam Dubose. What About the Officer(s) Who Lied To Cover It Up?
Police officers aren't the only people who lie about crimes. That's not the point. The police are supposed to uphold the law. Criminals are supposed be the ones who break it. We should be able to tell the difference between them.
