Eric Garner's mother says watching George Floyd plead 'I can't breathe' before dying in police custody was like having 'déjà vu all over again'

  Eric Garner's mother says watching George Floyd plead 'I can't breathe' before dying in police custody was like having 'déjà vu all over again' Eric Garner's mother Gwen Carr spoke out about George Floyd's death on Wednesday, two days after a police officer held him down by putting a knee on his neck for nearly eight minutes. Garner died in 2014 after a New York police officer put him in an apparent chokehold. Garner and Floyd each said the same words before dying: "I can't breathe." Carr told NBC News that watching footage of George Floyd's death was like a "reoccurring nightmare," and like having "déjà vu all over again." Four police officers were fired following Floyd's death, but none of them have been charged.

Police were seen in videos posted to social media pummeling protesters with batons and pepper-spraying them. While the large group was ordered to disperse and dozens of protesters arrested for refusing to disperse, many remained in the area hours later.
