Justice officials want to meet with vic’s kid
Eric Garner’s daughter has been asked to meet with the Justice Department to get an update on its yearslong investigation into his chokehold death on Staten Island.
“So I got some breaking news for yall,” Erica Garner tweeted on Monday afternoon.
“The DOJ just reached out to me and said they want to meet to give me an update.”
While a grand jury opted not to indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo following Garner’s controversial death on July 17, 2014, the Justice Department launched a federal civil-rights investigation.
The probe was said to have picked up steam earlier this year after the feds questioned a highranking NYPD official and a sergeant behind closed doors.
While the DOJ’s request to speak with Erica Garner may sig- nal a shift in the case, she wrote Monday that she still doesn’t believe Pantaleo will be punished.
“Im not stupid,” she tweeted. “I saw how they did mike, and freddy and tamir...Jeff Session, Loretta Lynch, Barack Obama and Trump are gonna f--k us over.”
