chokehold > Eric Garner
July 17, 2014 (...)
two officers approached Mr. Garner
as he stood unarmed on a sidewalk,
and accused him
of selling untaxed cigarettes.
One of the officers
used a chokehold
by the Police Department ó
to subdue him,
and that was cited
by the medical examiner
as a cause of Mr. Garnerís death.
The killing of Mr. Garner, 43,
followed by the fatal shooting
of Michael Brown
by a police officer
in Ferguson, Mo.,
set off a national debate
about policing actions
in minority communities
and racial discrimination
in the criminal justice system.
