NYPD to Bring Department Charges Against Eric Garner Cops

The New York Police Department on Monday announced it will bring departmental charges against two officers who were involved in the 2014 death of Eric Garner. The case against Daniel Pantaleo, whose chokehold contributed to Garner's death will start around Sept. 1, according to a letter the department's lawyer sent to a Justice Department official. The NYPD is done waiting after doing so for four years “so as not to have an adverse impact on any ongoing federal criminal civil rights investigation or possible federal criminal prosecution.” Police Sgt. Kizzy Adonis, who arrived at the scene later, is also facing a charges and is accused of failing to supervise. Garner died while being apprehended by police for allegedly selling loose cigarettes in 2014.
