Jus­tice of­fi­cials want to meet with vic’s kid

New York Post - - NEWS - Chris Perez

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.”
