    The white New York police officer who choke-held unarmed Eric Garner leading to his death had earlier been sued thrice for alleged misconduct. A UN Special Rapporteur has expressed concern over a "pattern of impunity," citing two grand juries' failure to indict officers involved in the deaths of two black civilians. Last year, Darren Collins and Tommy Rice alleged in a federal court lawsuit that the officer, Daniel Pantaleo, and four other officers humiliated and unlawfully strip-searched them publicly after handcuffing them during their arrest on Staten Island the previous year, Detroit Free Press reports. The cops, who were searching...

    In the wake of a Staten Island grand jury's failure to indict New York police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner, mayor Bill de Blasio has announced the initiation of a retraining program for the entire New York City police force. Eric Garner died as a result of neck compression from a chokehold that is banned by the New York City Police Department. Bill de Blasio spoke on Wednesday night about the personal feelings he had tied with the grand jury's decision not to indict officer Panteleo, bringing up the painful talks he and his wife Chirlane...

    Activist priest Michael Pfleger was urging churches everywhere to take time out of services on Sunday for some civil disobedience, as a response to the second case of a grand jury failing to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black man. “I think it’s a great opportunity to show a unity in church. The church has to be vocal in this,” Pfleger said. His call for action comes one day after a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict New York Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner. The grand jury decided...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said in a Fox & Friends interview on Thursday that "there was no racism" in the case of Eric Garner. He also stated that he agreed with the grand jury's decision, saying they "reached a verdict they felt was right." "There was no racism in this case," Guiliani said. "There was no indication that if this man was a white man of the same size resisting arrest, the same thing would happen." Giuliani also criticized New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio for inciting the protests over the Garner decision. He mentioned...

    Lost in the racial outcry over the decision to not indict white police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Black petty criminal Eric Garner is the key fact that the attempt to arrest Garner was overseen by a Black female police sergeant. Black female Police sergeant Kizzy Adoni supervized the fatal arrest of Eric Garner.The Black female police sergeant is not shown in the countless replays in the media of cellphone footage that showed white male police officers confronting and taking down Garner but she is said to be seen in the video.From a police report reported by PIX11...

    ... Pantaleo who applied the lethal chokehold on Eric Garner was supervised by an African-American female NYPD sergeant. Having that black sergeant in charge of that crime scene takes race out of the equation. As awful as Pantaleo’s actions appear on that video, at no time does that black sergeant order Pantaleo to stop choking Garner. With a population that is 70% white and 10% African-American, when a Staten Island grand jury is presented with a white cop supervised by a black sergeant applying a lethal chokehold, it eliminates the racial component. The grand jury was then left with the...
  • Krauthammer: Decision not to indict NYPD officer 'totally incomprehensible'

    Charles Krauthammer said Wednesday on "Special Report with Bret Baier" that a grand jury's decision not to indict a New York City police officer in the death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man who died in July after the officer placed him in a chokehold, is "totally incomprehensible." "It looks like they at least might have indicted him on something like involuntary manslaughter at the very least," Krauthammer, a syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor, said. "The guy was unarmed, and the crime was petty as they come. He was selling loose cigarettes, which in and of itself is...

    A New York City grand jury has declined to indict an NYPD officer in the chokehold case of Eric Garner, the unarmed man who died while being arrested on Staten Island earlier this year. In opting not to indict, the panel determined there was not probable cause that a crime was committed by NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo, who was seen on a widely watched amateur video showing him wrapping his arm around Garner's neck as Garner yelled, "I can't breathe!" during the summer altercation.

    On MSNBC's The Ed Show, host Schultz featured a panel of guests today to discuss the grand jury decision not to indict a police officer in connection with the death of Eric Garner in New York City. Schultz interviewed T-Dubb-O, an activist and self-described unsigned rapper from St. Louis, as to what the video of the incident and the subsequent grand jury decision mean. His answer: It means that it's absolutely legal to kill a black person whenever you feel like if you're a police officer. It's legal in the United States of America to still hang and lynch people...

    On Wednesday, a New York grand jury refused to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner. Pantaleo is white; Garner is black. That one fact meant that the President of the United States and the Mayor of New York City took to the microphones to denounce American racism.
