It was nearly 5 years ago that the death of Eric Garner sparked uproar across the United States. Though most would call Eric Garners death a murder- due to the excessive force seen used in the video that went viral on social media of Eric Garner being held in a choke hold while being arrested. Though the family members of Garner are still grieving, the daughter of Garner has in fact thanked officials for deciding to fire the officer involved in choking Garner during his arrest. According to cnn.com "A detailed report from NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Trials Rosemarie Maldonado on the death of Eric Garner found officer Daniel Pantaleo had committed "grave misconduct."
The report states "the use of the choke hold fell so far short of the objective reasonableness that this tribunal found it to be reckless — a gross deviation from the standard of conduct established for a New York City police officer. Moreover, respondent’s glaring dereliction of responsibility precipitated a tragic outcome.”
