DISMAY OVER BLACK DEATH PROBE

By Black Radio Network Staff

      NEW YORK - Eric Garner’s family and supporters, including many top local officials, gathered outside City Hall on the fourth anniversary of his police-chokehold death Tuesday to blame NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and the City’s Police Department for allegedly dragging their feet in the case.

      “City Hall has to wake up,” said city Comptroller Scott Stringer. “The mayor has to come clean, and he has to assure the public that this long-awaited investigation will actually really happen.”

      The NYPD announced Monday that it would finally conduct an internal disciplinary hearing for the cops involved in Garner’s 2104 death, saying it couldn’t wait any longer for the federal Department of Justice to finish its probe.

      Police Commissioner James O’Neill said the proceeding would start in September.

      A report by the city Medical Examiner’s Office has said Garner, a 42-year-old father of six, died after being put in a chokehold. He was stopped by cops for selling single cigarettes in his Staten Island neighborhood, and NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo placed him in the hold during the arrest. Pantaleo remains on modified desk duty with a full salary
