A newly discovered video depicting the arrest and homicide of Eric Garner shows how police responded after he was choked to death.
For seven minutes, police stood around calmly — acting as if he were still alive. Meanwhile, Mr. Garner lay handcuffed, dead in the street.
Police did not try to administer CPR on Mr. Garner. When a witness questioned why the police were not performing CPR on him, they lied, “He’s still breathing.”
Garner was being restrained for arrest after breaking up a fight on suspicion of selling untaxed cigarettes. As he was being arrested, Officer Pantaleo put Garner in a chokehold that was banned by the NYPD.
In other videos, Garner can be heard begging for his life eight separate times, saying, “I can’t breath.”
