After five long years of obstruction and refusal to take action by Mayor de Blasio and the Department to hold the NYPD involved in Eric Garner’s killing accountable, and tireless organizing by the Garner family and community organizations and advocates, Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who put Garner in a banned chokehold, was fired in August 2019. The fight for justice for Eric Garner is not yet over. Of the multiple NYPD on scene that day, only one other besides Pantaleo, Sergeant Kizzy Adonis, has faced any disciplinary action.
