Kizzy Adonis, a 14-year NYPD veteran, was one of the supervising officers at the scene of Garner’s death during his arrest 18 months ago for selling illegal loose cigarettes.
Adonis told investigators “the perpetrator’s condition did not seem serious and that he did not appear to get worse,” according to an internal report by the NYPD.
But Adonis also said that she “believed she heard the perpetrator state that he was having difficulty breathing.”

I don't know how to feel about this.  If they were ever going to charge ANYBODY for Eric Garner's death Daniel Pantaleo should have gone down first.  So yes, this is an example of racism at its finest. 

But I still don't know how to feel about this. 

I could understand her being pressured to write this or that by white superiors while trying to think about how to keep her job to pay rent or kids school clothes etc. I wouldn't like it. But maybe I could try to understand succumbing to that.

But she was standing there?

There's film of Garner's death --and she's not in it. Was she way off to the side somewhere? Could she be so far off to the side that it was almost like she was back at the office while this was happening on the street? I kinda doubt the possibility of this scenario. So I'm confused.
If she WAS in the immediate vicinity, has she seen so many choke holds that this did not affect her? If she was in the immediate vicinity and it did affect her, why don't we hear her screaming at Pantaleo to let Garner go? Why did she write what she wrote in her report? I need a lot more information. Don't you? And why is this the first we're really hearing about Adonis after all this time? Is this NYPD's way of saying "ha-ha" and f-you black community? I kinda think it is. Don't you? And I'd bet a lot of money she's being punished for admitting that she heard Garner saying he was having difficulty breathing. The quotes together seem like she was trying to tell the truth and please white management at the same time. I'm not sure there too many of us of any age who hasn't been caught up in something a lot less serious but similar. 

I wonder if she wrote her statement before or after the video came out? Regardless of what her true level of responsibility for Eric Garner's death is, I want to know who initiated this attack on Kizzy Adonis, when, why, and how come it took this long. Don't you?
