NYPD Chokes Innocent Man To Death After He Breaks Up A Fight

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.

I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.

Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.

The Staten Island resident was sitting in front of Bay Beauty on Bay St. and Victory Blvd. just before 5 p.m. when two plainclothes cops began questioning him about selling untaxed cigarettes, a video obtained by the Daily News shows.

I didn’t do shit!” the 6-foot-4 Garner, wearing a sweaty T-shirt and khaki shorts, told the officers from the 120th Precinct when they approached him. “I was just minding my own business.

Every time you see me you want to mess with me. I’m tired of it. It stops today!” he yelled.

Ramsey Orta, 22, who shot the video, tried to intervene, telling the cops his friend had just broken up a fight between three men and had not been selling cigarettes.

They jumped him and they were choking him. He was foaming at the mouth,” Orta told The News. “And that’s it, he was done. The cops were saying, ‘No, he’s OK, he’s OK.” He wasn’t OK.

They were choking him. He kept saying, ‘I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe! Get off of me, get off of me!’ and I didn’t hear any more talking after that,” said witness Valencia Griffin, 50, of Staten Island. “He died right there.

At the video’s end, the cop who had choke-held Garner can be seen staring at the camera that was videotaping him.

“This had nothing to do with the fight, this had something to do with something else,” the cop said, and walked away.

According to bystanders, the dozen or so cops who were at the scene didn’t attempt CPR. They were more concerned about dispersing the crowd who seen the murder.

Notorious Hamas leader, Mohammed Malaka,2 years old,murdered by Israeli Luftwaffe last night.

The death toll from this week’s Israeli airstrikes on Gaza has risen to at least 84, with 550 wounded. A large majority of the dead are civilians.

Mohammed is one of the 5 Palestinian children confirmed dead (TW:Graphic).

This is not ‘self-defense’, it is genocide.

My heart goes out to everyone effected by the violence.
