What's next for Eric Garner's family now that the NYPD officer has been fired

  • Snipes Garner thanked NYPD Commissioner James O'Neill for firing officer Daniel Pantaleo in a press conference Monday and said that she planned to push for several more changes.
  • In particular, she called for a new "Eric Garner Law," which would "ban officers being protected by a shield and not held accountable for their actions," she explained.
  • Rev. Al Sharpton, the longtime civil rights activist and a close ally of the Garner family, explained that they are pushing for a law that would make chokeholds a criminal offense, and not just a violation of NYPD internal policy.
  • On Monday, Sharpton also called for US Rep. Jerry Nadler of New York, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, to hold congressional hearings and investigate why the federal government did not bring a case on whether Garner's civil rights were violated.

  • The law comes as Democratic and progressive lawmakers and activists in the state look for ways to rein in police following the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man in Sacramento last year.
  • The measure's final hurdle was cleared nearly six months after a prosecutor in Sacramento announced she would not be filing charges against two police officers who killed Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man who was fatally shot in his grandmother's backyard last year.

An NYPD judge recommends that the officer accused of fatally choking Eric Garner should be fired, officials say

  • New York (CNN) - New York Police Department Officer Daniel Pantaleo should be terminated for his role in the death of Eric Garner, a departmental administrative judge officially recommended Friday, city officials said.
  • NYPD Police Commissioner James O'Neill is expected to follow the recommendation of Deputy Commissioner of Trials Rosemarie Maldonado, a senior law enforcement official said.
  • Maldonado ruled that a chokehold triggered a series of event's that culminated with Garner's death, according to a source who saw the judge's report.
  • But Maldonado ruled that while on top of Garner, the officer could have used a tactic other than the banned chokehold, according to the source who saw the report.
  • Maldonado ruled that Pantaleo's use of the move was a reckless and egregious display of misconduct since only a small number of maneuvers are banned by the NYPD and chokeholds are one of them, according to the source.
