——Hello my name is Emerald Snipes Garner, the youngest daughter of Eric Garner. My father was killed by former NYPD police officer Daniel Pantaleo because of the use of an illegal chokehold that caused my dad to have a fatal asthma attack.
Eric Garner, yelled “I can’t breathe!” 11 times while he was being choked to death by an NYPD officer. Emerald Eric’s Daughter now wants to make sure that police officers are banned from using chokeholds that can easily kill unarmed civilians.
She has launched this petition for the “Eric Garner Law” to ban illegal chokeholds. In a few weeks, Emerald will be testifying for this law and she hopes to deliver thousands of signatures supporting her. Will yours be one of them?
