Justice Department Will Not Charge Officer Who Killed Eric Garner

The day before the five year anniversary of Eric Garner’s death, it was reported by multiple outlets that a federal prosecutor would not charge the police officer responsible for his death.

Per USA Today, The Justice Department will not bring federal charges against Daniel Pantaleo, the NYPD officer who held Garner in a chokehold outside of a store in Staten Island in an attempt to arrest him for allegedly selling cigarettes. Garner’s last words “I can’t breathe” became a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement.

“In 2017, the city's Civilian Complaints Review Board determined that Pantaleo used excessive force,” USA Today reports. “Federal authorities have been conducting a separate, years-long civil rights inquiry into Garner's death. Pantaleo also is awaiting a verdict in a NYPD disciplinary proceeding.”

During Pantaleo’s trial this past May, Stuart London– the police union lawyer who represented the officer– argued that Mr. Garner died from being “morbidly obese.”

“Those who have been able to not come to a rushed judgment, but have looked at the video in explicit detail, see Pantaleo’s intent and objective was to take him down pursuant to how he was taught by NYPD, control him when they got on the ground, and then have him cuffed,”  London said in an interview with the New York Times. “There was never any intent for him to exert pressure on his neck and choke him out the way the case has been portrayed.”

Nipsey Hussle Was Reportedly Being Investigated For Gang Ties Prior To His Death

According to reports, Nipsey Hussle was reportedly under investigation due to gang ties prior to his fatal death in late-March.

Per The New York Times, there was an open investigation being conducted by the LAPD and the city attorney’s office, which is reportedly still ongoing. The Victory Lap rapper’s property– including his clothing store The Marathon– are being looked into, in an effort to prove that the strip mall that Nip owned was subject to gang activity and violence.

“As part of the investigation, the city pressured Hussle’s former landlords to evict the rapper and his associates,” the report reads. “Instead, the landlords sold the property earlier this year to Hussle and a group of investors for $2.5 million, according to public records.”

Despite the efforts, the Los Angeles community and the music world continue to mourn the death of the 33-year-old Grammy nominee. However, his memory and voice lives on both on wax and in the real world.

“Everybody knows that Nipsey was pretty much the founder of the idea to bring everyone together who, you know, may individually be able to do great things and make a significant impact on their own in their communities,” T.I. said of his fallen friend. “But for us to come together, we can impact so, so many more communities and spread our efforts so much wider.”
