    A judicial inquiry is set to begin Monday over allegations by Eric Garner’s family that city officials, including by Mayor Bill de Blasio and former police commissioners, neglected their duties by failing to fully investigate Garner’s fatal 2014 arrest. Garner’s mom Gwen Carr, his sister and other activists filed suit in August 2019 to force the unusual legal procedure citing an obscure part of the City Charter — Section 1109 — that allows a judge to order city officials to answer questions under oath when five citizen-taxpayers bring claims of official misconduct. But unlike a traditional trial, there will be...

    A Colorado city paid $3million to settle a federal police brutality lawsuit involving a 73-year-old woman with dementia, who was beaten during an arrest and left in lockup for six hours without medical care. The elderly woman, Karen Garner, was arrested by now-former Loveland Police Officers Austin Hopp, 26, and Daria Jalali, 27, on June 26, 2020 after she inadvertently left Walmart without paying for $13 worth of items. They were seen in bodycam footage slamming Garner to the ground and twisting her arm, which resulted in a fractured elbow and dislocated arm, according to a federal lawsuit filed in...

    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 O’Neill announced Monday. O’Neill’s widely expected decision to fire the embattled cop endorsed the recommendation of a deputy commissioner who presided over Pantaleo’s departmental trial earlier this year. It also came after Mayor Bill de Blasio proclaimed that Garner’s family was “going to get justice…in the next 30 days” during a Democratic presidential primary debate on July 31.

The star said she knows that many people from rural communities voted for Trump. She traveled to her hometown in West Virginia last year and saw for herself how many Trump supporters were there.

    While police officers are getting murdered in Dallas and Baton Rouge, while others are under assault in Missouri, Georgia and Tennessee, while supporters of the Black Lives Matter movement attempt to justify the murders of police officers, the Democratic National Convention, AKA Hillary’s Coronation, will feature the mothers of black men who died in confrontations with police, thereby perpetuating the myth that there is systemic racism in police departments across the nation. One mother who will speak will be Lezley McSpadden, the mother of Michael Brown, the “Gentle Giant” who burgled a convenience store, then attempted to grab the gun...

    A high school basketball tournament set to begin Monday in Fort Bragg has been thrust into the national discussion over police killings of unarmed black men, after Mendocino High’s girls team was disinvited because its players refused to stop wearing a T-shirt with the slogan “I Can’t Breathe” during warmups. The debate has pitted socially progressive high school students from Mendocino against a blue-collar Fort Bragg community still mourning the killing of Ricky Del Fiorintino, a Mendocino County sheriff’s deputy and popular wrestling coach at Fort Bragg High who was gunned down in March by an Oregon fugitive. The controversy...

    One of Eric Garner’s daughters marked Christmas Day by spreading personal information about an NYPD cop who was present during the chokehold death of her father — outraging officers still reeling from last weekend’s execution-style slayings of two policemen in Brooklyn. Erica Garner tweeted that cop Justin D’Amico was “another officer that helped killed [sic] my dad,” and directed her 5,000-plus Twitter followers to a Web page that lists ­addresses for D’Amico and five possible relatives. The information was viewed about 500 times before Garner’s stunning tweet was deleted following inquiries by The Post.
