Former NYPD officer who put Eric Garner in lethal chokehold loses bid to get job back


-snip=

Daniel Pantaleo was fired by then-New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill after a departmental trial found he used an unauthorized chokehold to restrain Garner, a 43-year-old Black man who was arrested on Staten Island in a dispute over selling loose cigarettes.

“Substantial evidence supports respondents’ conclusion that petitioner recklessly caused injury to Eric Garner by maintaining a prohibited chokehold for 9 to 10 seconds after exigent circumstances were no longer present, thereby disregarding the risk of injury,” the three-judge panel decided.

The departmental trial determined Pantaleo did not intentionally strangle Garner but the appellate division said his firing was not unexpected.

“Conduct far less serious than petitioner’s has been found by the Court of Appeals to have a destructive impact ... on the confidence, which it is so important for the public to have in its police officers,” the panel said.

1. Tough luck, ex-cop (sarcasm). Your case comes up right after implied immunity in NY was thrown out.

Too bad. So sad.
