NEW YORK: ERIC GARNER TRIAL BEGINS ON ILLEGAL CHOKEHOLD

The sister of the 43-year-old New York City father who died after an NYPD officer allegedly used a banned chokehold on him in 2014 left a Manhattan courtroom wailing Monday as the now infamous video of the arrest that led to his death was played.

Eric Garner's mother, Gwen Carr, also left in tears as the video of her son saying "I can't breathe" repeatedly as he gasps for air during that July 2014 confrontation was played on the opening day of officer Daniel Pantaleo's departmental trial. Garner's dying words, captured in widely watched cellphone video, became a rallying cry for a national movement against police brutality.

"These are just tears from heaven," said Carr as rain fell outside the courthouse. "Eric is crying from heaven because he sees his motherand his family still trying to fight for justice for him."

Pantaleo and other officers were trying to handcuff Garner, an unarmed black man, after stopping him on a city street corner for allegedly selling loose, untaxed cigarettes, when Garner started to struggle. He later died.

Anchor Stefan Holt reports on a guilty plea for Felicity Huffman, a doctor accused of selling opioids and the measles outbreak.

BS the chokehold contributed to his death immensely. The KKKops are still using these illegal chokeholds, I saw it the other day with Black children gathering at a carnival. Coon Al Sharpton need to get out of the picture, he smells money. We need to get our hunt on and apply the eye for an eye ideology. Later for turn the other cheek.
