Murder Ruled Homicide
Eric Garner was only 43 years old when he was accosted by police last week in what is now ruled a homicide. I am 43 years old too.
I truly hope the police who killed him are brought to justice (and lose more than their badge and guns)
The youtube video above is of a group of Broadway performers who assembled outside NYPD headquarters to do a moving performance this afternoon.
From the article
In response to the medical examiner’s findings, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio released a statement to CBS New York addressing Garner’s family and the city in general.
“On behalf of all New Yorkers, I extend my deepest sympathies to the family of Eric Garner, on this day we have received the Medical Examiner’s findings concerning the cause of his death,“ he said. My administration will continue to work with all involved authorities, including the Richmond County District Attorney, to ensure a fair and justified outcome.”
Speaking to the New York Daily News, Garner’s wife, Esaw, expressed relief with the medical examiner’s conclusions. She had previously criticized police for using excessive and unnecessary force.
“Thank God the truth is finally out,” she said. “Thank God for that.”
For its part, the NYPD told CBS it “will continue to cooperate with the Richmond County District Attorney’s office, which is the lead investigative entity in this case.”
Already, Police Chief William Bratton has stated that significant reforms will be made to the NYPD’s training methods. Although chokeholds have been banned since 1993, officers in New York have been accused of using it more than 1,000 times in the last five years.
So proud of the non violent reaction by New Yorkers and my heart goes out to 43 year old Eric’s family. I can only imagine how they feel. I can only imagine how my family would feel if it were me 43 year old Erin.. The fact that choke holds have been blocked so many years yet continued to be used boggles my mind competely… .
