Eric Garner's Widow Says 'Hell NO!' to Officer's Condolences

Esaw Garner at press conference (12-03-14)

*To say Eric Garner‘s widow is beyond pissed at the cop who killed her husband with an illegal choke-hold is an understatement.

Put it this way. Esaw Garner, firmly rejected condolences from the officer who was investigated in the death of her husband.

“Hell no,” said Esaw Garner during a Wednesday press conference with Rev. Al Sharpton and the National Action network. “The time for remorse would have been when my husband was screaming to breath. That would have been the time for him to show some type of remorse or some type of care for another human being’s life, when he was screaming 11 times that he can’t breathe.”

Her statement came after a grand jury decided not to charge New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo in her husband’s death. Pantaleo was videotaped holding Garner in an apparent chokehold during an arrest. The 43-year-old Garner had been suspected of selling cigarettes illegally. He died in the incident.
