Eric Garner's mother speaks out on anniversary of his death

Protest erupts in New York after police officer avoids charges in Eric Garner chokehold case

A NY police officer accused of placing a 43-year-old black man in a banned choke hold just before his death in 2014 will not face federal charges, the government said, in a decision slammed by the victim's family as an "insult".

Daughter Emerald Garner led supporters at a vigil in NY on Tuesday night, chanting "I can't breathe!" She paid tribute to her late sister, Erica, a civil rights campaigner who died of a heart attack in December 2017. "This present day, we can no longer breathe".

Calling Garner's death "a bad tragedy", Donoghue said that "having thoroughly investigated the surrounding circumstances, the department has concluded that the evidence would not support federal civil rights charges against any officer".

In a cell phone video, the officer appeared to have Garner in a chokehold shortly before Garner died. The official's tortuous explanation hinged on such matters as whether Pantaleo had "willfully" used "excessive force" when he killed Garner.

In 2015, New York City agreed to pay Garner's family a settlement of $5.9 million to resolve a wrongful death lawsuit.

A medical examiner found a chokehold contributed to his death.

A justice department loyal said that prosecutors watched the video of Garner's difference with police "limitless" instances, however had been unconvinced that Officer Pantaleo wilfully outdated awful power in Garner's death, USA media experiences.

Barr sided with a Justice Department team from NY over the Civil Rights Division in Washington, saying prosecutors did not have enough evidence to show that Officer Daniel Pantaleo used "objectively unreasonable" force when he used a chokehold to subdue Garner during an arrest.

"The law recognizes that police are often forced to make split-second judgments in circumstances that are tense, uncertain and rapidly evolving", Donoghue said.

In the years since Garner's death, the NYPD has made a series of sweeping changes on how it relates to the communities it serves, ditching a policy of putting rookie officers in higher-crime precincts in favor of a neighborhood policing model that revolves around community officers tasked with getting to know New Yorkers.

Echoing the feedback of Garner's family, Mr de Blasio said in a assertion that the justice department had failed the metropolis.

"Like many of you, I have watched that video many times, and each time I've watched it, I'm left with the same reaction: that the death of Eric Garner was a tragedy", Donoghue said.

Wednesday is the fifth anniversary of Eric Garner's death, an event that helped fuel the Black Lives Matter movement.

Garner's last words "I can't breathe", became a rallying cry in Black Lives Matter protests demanding police accountability for the deaths of unarmed black men. Athletes like National Basketball Association star LeBron James bore the message on T-shirts in support of the cause.

Eric Garner died in 2014 after police attempted to arrest the 43-year-old father of six for allegedly selling cigarettes illegally in Staten Island.

Garner's friend, Ramsey Orta, recorded the confrontation on his cell phone as it quickly escalated.
