NYPD commissioner on his decision to fire Daniel Pantaleo: "I've had 5 years to think about this"
Thursday, 22 August 2019 In an exclusive interview with “CBS This Morning,” New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill discusses his "difficult" decision to fire the officer who put Eric Garner in a deadly chokehold five years ago. Daniel Pantaleo brought Garner to the ground after officers said he resisted arrest for selling loose cigarettes. The Staten Island district attorney and the Department of Justice decided to not charge Pantaleo with a crime. The police union criticized O’Neill’s decision to fire him, saying the commissioner, "has chosen politics and his own self-interest over the police officers he claims to lead."
