*One of Eric Garner’s daughters has incensed New York police officers by sharing the address of another cop who was at the scene of her father’s chokehold death this summer.
At 1:45 a.m. on Thursday, Erica Garner tweeted that Officer Justin D’Amico, who has previously been named in reports, was “another officer that helped killed my dad,” the New York Post reported.
She also shared a link that listed addresses for the officer and five possible relatives.
Erica Garner, who has more than 5,000 followers on Twitter, promptly deleted the tweet after inquiries from the Post, it reported.
Her message came nearly a week after two police officers, Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, were shot dead in their patrol car in Brooklyn by Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who had claimed he was going to put “wings on pigs” for the deaths of Garner and Ferguson teenager Michael Brown.
Police officers said they feared that D’Amico and his family could now be targeted because of the “disgusting” tweet.
“She clearly wants someone to go to the officer’s house and assassinate him in cold blood just like Ramos and Liu,” a police source told the Post.
Garner’s family attorney did not deny that Erica Garner shared the link to pastebin.com, which allows users to anonymously share text documents, but claimed she had not known what was in the link.
“Nobody in the Garner family, including Erica, would consciously send information out about the personal address or phone number or any identifying information about the police officers, particularly after what happened to those two officers,” Jonathan Moore said.
D’Amico was given immunity to testify before the Staten Island grand jury that ultimately decided not to bring charges against another police officer, Daniel Pantaleo, who held Garner, 43, in a chokehold during his arrest on July 17. The NYPD banned the use of chokeholds in 1992.
