Departmental trial to start Monday for NYPD cop accused of using banned chokehold that led to death of Eric Garner

Departmental trial to start Monday for NYPD cop accused of using banned chokehold that led to death of Eric Garner A judge on Thursday shot down a Staten Island cop’s attempt to delay his departmental trial for using a banned chokehold that led to the death of Eric Garner, paving the way for what will be the only public accounting of the 2014 incident that helped galvanize the Black Lives Matter movement. A lawyer for NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo had argued that the Civilian Complaint Review Board does not have the jurisdiction to prosecute him in the trial room at One Police Plaza because the complaint against Pantaleo was filed by a woman who didn’t witness what happened July 17, 2014, when Garner died after he was forced to the ground by several cops.

NEW YORK – The medical examiner who performed an autopsy on Eric Garner testified Wednesday that a police officer's chokehold set into motion "a lethal sequence of events," but she said even a bear hug could've hastened his death given Garner ' s fragile health.

Persechino says hemorrhaging in neck muscles was indicative of a chokehold that set off an asthma attack and led to his death.

She also reviewed video of the confrontation as well as security video showing Garner an hour earlier.

Garner's mother heeded a warning from the administrative judge and left the room so she didn't have to see autopsy photos.

Persechino also said Garner suffered from obesity and an enlarged heart — factors Pantaleo's lawyers say caused his death.
