Eric Garner: NY officer in 'I can't breathe' death fired

O'Neill said it was clear that Pantaleo "can no longer effectively serve as a New York City police officer".

Garner's repeated dying cries of "I can't breathe", widely viewed on social media, became a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement, which protests what its leaders call the disparate use of excessive force against black people across the United States.

A grand jury declined to indict Pantaleo in December 2014 and US Attorney General William Barr in July opted against filing civil rights charges on grounds of "insufficient evidence" following a almost five-year investigation launched by predecessor AG Eric Holder.

Pat Lynch, president of the Police Benovolent Association, last month called Maldonado's recommendation "pure insanity".

Police commissioner James O'Neill made the announcement Monday afternoon after weeks of deliberating whether to accept NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Trials Rosemarie Maldonado's recommendation that Pantaleo be fired for using the chokehold that was banned by the police department in 1993 on Garner.

The white New York Police Department officer who used a deadly chokehold on Eric Garner while trying to arrest him in 2014, giving rise to the Black Lives Matter movement, was sacked on Monday, Commissioner James O'Neill said.

"None of us can take back our decisions", he said, adding: "Especially when they lead to the death of another human being".

- Officer Daniel Pantaleo was "untruthful" during his interview with investigators after the death of Eric Garner. "This is the decision that the police commissioner makes", he said, calling Garner's death an "irreversible tragedy" that "must have a effect".

Garner died on July 17, 2014, after police attempted to arrest the 43-year-old father of six, who was allegedly selling loose cigarettes illegally on Staten Island, a crime for which he previously he had been arrested.

Video of the arrest showed Garner repeatedly saying "I can't breathe" as officers pressed him down into the pavement in the city's Staten Island borough. Federal authorities, however, kept a civil rights investigation open for five years before announcing last month they wouldn't bring charges.

The city medical examiner's office ruled Garner's death a homicide in the days after his death, and the medical examiner testified that Pantaleo's alleged chokehold caused an asthma attack and was "part of the lethal cascade of events".

And later in 2014, a man angry about the Garner and Brown cases shot two New York City police officers to death in their cruiser in retribution.
