Fighting Against Police Brutality.

5 years, dozens of protests, and numerous court cases later, we are finally nearing the end of the case for the murder of Eric Garner. Last Friday, a police administrative judge recommended the firing of Daniel Pantaleo, the NYPD officer that placed Garner in a chokehold resulting in his death. This act set in motion a national outcry against police brutality in black and brown communities. This week, we’re updating you on the latest developments of the court case, what it means for the Black Lives Matter movement, and its impact on New York and the nation.
