NYPD fires Officer Daniel Pantaleo in chokehold death of Eric Garner
NYPD cop Daniel Panatelo has been fired for causing the chokehold death of Eric Garner, Police Commissioner James ONeill announced Monday.
ONeills widely expected decision to fire the embattled cop endorsed the recommendation of a deputy commissioner who presided over Pantaleos departmental trial earlier this year.
It also came after Mayor Bill de Blasio proclaimed that Garners family was going to get justice
in the next 30 days during a Democratic presidential primary debate on July 31.

Cops sent to enforce insane tax laws on cigarettes. Enacted by the loonie left.
The race baiters win again. Now cops I suppose will have to ask a perps medical history after he resists arrest.
Remember, Eric Garner’s crime was being a capitalist....selling individual cigarettes from a pack that was taxed.
But in NYC, selling individual cigarettes is illegal and significant police resources were used to stop Eric Garner from making money on selling cigarettes individually.
Expect a major outbreak of blue-flu.
I’m of two minds of this
Police-caused deaths are never good. But I doubt it was anyone’s intent to harm Eric Garner. Garner has been arrested dozens of times for petty crimes. He was again selling individual cigarettes, which is against NY State/City law. Should police just ignore small crimes like that? If he is to be arrested again, how else to take a 350 lb man into custody?
From what I heard the city council demanded it and after Garners death what did they do? Protest. They protested something THEY demanded the cops do!!!
Michael Savage: Garner Chokehold ‘Was Murder’
You know what this is all about? Helping professional commie sc*mbag Warren Wilhelm aka Bill DuhBlasio with his POTUS campaign.
I’m listening to fake news on this exact subject on the radio right now.
Garner wasn’t killed by a choke hold.
Garner was killed by his own size and weight.
Very sad, but the cop didn’t kill him,.
Pantaleo should sue and probably will. His use of force was within Dept guidelines.
Michael Savage is an idiot, and obviously doesn’t know what a choke hold is or how it works.
This is ridiculous and obviously political. The puny minded judge, no doubt a libtard tool, ignored the previous ruling and recommended Pantaleo’s firing not because he was guilty but because that’s what the mob rule wanted. And because the petty criminal Eric Garner was black. DumblASSio’s favorite color of human.
I know somebody who lives in Brooklyn. I don’t think he’s bought a pack of cigarettes legally in years. The streets are flooded with them because of the insane tax laws.
He’s nuts, how the hell do you take down a 400 pounds man then who is resisting arrest? Trip him? I heard this dude had such bad heart and breathing problems that he couldn’t walk half a block, ANYTHING could have given him a heart attack. This is 100% on the city council that demanded cops do this and the Mayor, as Ann Coulter says: “Nothing comes between a liberal and taxes” All the crime out there and they are forcing cops to arrest someone selling a freaking cigarette.
Actually the medical examiner found the cause of death was neck compression. So you are wrong. Unless of course your political beliefs override a forensic pathologist.
Wrong. The chokehold is prohibited in NYC. The medical examiner found neck compression to be-the cause of death.
ALL laws mandating or prohibiting conduct are passed on pain of death. The police are authorized to kill anyone who persistently does the prohibited thing or fails to do the mandated thing.
Don't believe me? Don't pay your income taxes. See what happens.
NY cops just doing the tax man’s job. Big Brother needs their cigarette tax money to keep City Hall running.
He was fired for lying to investigators
