Daughter Of Eric Garner: The Only Cop Being Charged In My Father’s Murder Is Being Charged Because She’s Black

Via Erica Garner:

“My father, Eric Garner, was killed by New York Police Department officer Daniel Pantaleo a year and a half ago, but last week marks the department’s first official charge of wrongdoing in his case. The charge was not made against Pantaleo, the officer who placed my father in a fatal—and illegal— chokehold, but against Sgt. Kizzy Adonis, one of two supervising officers at the scene.

We know Sgt. Adonis wasn’t even assigned on patrol during the incident. According to Ed Mullins, head of the sergeants’ union, she “responded at her own initiative.” She wasn’t the borough or zone commander. Yet Sgt. Adonis, stripped of her gun and badge, is now being charged on four counts of “failure to supervise.”

Though I never find myself agreeing with Mullins, a pathetic imitation of Pat Lynch, we share this opinion: the charges against Adonis are ridiculous.”
