The New York Police Department on Monday fired the white officer who used a deadly chokehold on Eric Garner while trying to arrest him in 2014, an incident that helped fuel the "Black Lives Matter" movement in response to police use of force.

The case, made famous by Garner's plaintive cries of "I can't breathe" with officer Daniel Pantaleo's arm wrapped around his neck, tore at the NYPD for five long years while the United States dealt with a series of other cases of white officers killing unarmed African-American men.
