New York Police Officer Faces Disciplinary Trial In Garner Death

According to Reuters, the disciplinary trial of the New York City police officer who put Eric Garner, an unarmed black man, in a fatal chokehold nearly 5 years ago began on Monday.

Daniel Pantaleo could be fired after the conclusion of what is expected to be a 10-day trial at the New York Police Department’s headquarters in Manhattan.

The trial will be closely watched by civil rights activists who say too few police officers face consequences for using deadly force.
