Death of Eric Garner:
On July 17, 2014, Eric Garner died in Staten Island, New York City, after a New York City Police Department (NYPD) officer put him in a headlock or chokehold for about 15 to 19 seconds while arresting him. NYPD policy prohibits the use of chokeholds, and the officer denied choking Garner. The New York City Medical Examiner's Office report stated "Cause of Death: Compression of neck, compression of chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police" and "Contributing Conditions: Acute and chronic bronchial asthma; Obesity; Hypertensive cardiovascular disease." However, the lawyer for the accused officer has asserted that a subsequent internal report from New York Police Department (NYPD) Chief Surgeon Eli Kleinman, completed at the request of NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau, found that Pantaleo did not put Garner into a chokehold, and that Garner' pre-existing health conditions — including obesity, asthma, hypertension, and diabetes — contributed to his death. The filming of the incident brought police brutality into wider public awareness.
