Eric Garner’s mother confronts Mayor de Blasio about NYPD accountability for her son’s death

The NYPD has finally begun disciplinary proceedings against the officer, Daniel Pantaleo, who placed the unarmed Garner in a chokehold as he cried “I can’t breathe,” some four years after his death. Disciplinary charges are also being brought against Sgt. Kizzy Adonis who was on scene. It comes after years of de Blasio insisting the department would first wait for the U.S. Justice Department to decide whether to bring civil rights charges – a decision the feds have yet to make, prompting de Blasio this summer to say he would stop waiting.
