ERIC GARNER'S MURDER HAS GOTTEN A 14% PAY RAISE SINCE THE MURDER

Feeling Rebloggy 

 A REPOST
On July 17, 2014, NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo choked Eric Garner to death for allegedly selling loose cigarettes. It was a hold that had been outlawed by the NYPD.
On December 3, 2014, a grand jury decided not to indict Pantaleo.


Before he put Garner in the chokehold, he had seven disciplinary complaints and 14 individual allegations lodged against him.


  • A ThinkProgress analysis of available CCRB data found that only 1,750 current NYPD officers — or around 4.9 percent of the force — have received eight or more complaints, as Pantaleo has.
No matter the disposition of the charges, if as officer gets three complaints in a year, they are supposed to be on performance monitoring. Pantaleo received three complaints in the course of two months in 2012.”


In December 2015, the NYPD completed its internal investigation, but would not take disciplinary action until the Justice Department completes its own probe, which continues. As of September 2016, Pantaleo was on desk duty without a firearm. Awaiting his fate, he received a raise last year. His 2016 salary was $119,996 — a 14 percent increase from what he was making when he killed Garner 
.

An employee of the Civilian Complaint Review Board leaked Panaleo's records; [that] employee was forced to resign.

The head of the Justice Department is America's top cop, the Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  I wouldn't hold my breathe waiting for a reasonable outcome from the Department of Justice.
