Justice Department Investigating NYPD Cop Caught Killing Eric Garner on Video


Justice Department Investigating NYPD Cop Caught Killing Eric Garner on Video

Andrew Emett, News Report
Attorney General Eric Holder announced on Wednesday that the Justice Department will conduct an investigation into the death of Eric Garner after a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict the NYPD officer responsible for using a banned chokehold resulting in Garner’s death. Garner is one of at least nine unarmed black people killed by police in recent months. To date, no officers have been charged with the deaths.

Around 4:45pm on July 17, Eric Garner and his friend, Ramsey Orta, were discussing where to eat dinner when a fight erupted nearby. After Garner assisted in breaking up the fight, NYPD Officer Justin Damico approached Garner and accused him of selling untaxed cigarettes.

Orta pulled out his phone and began recording the incident on video.

    Police brutality here in the USA, in Brazil, in Guyana, and around the world is only a weapon of the punishing state.
