[Gothamist] Officer Who Put Eric Garner In Fatal Chokehold Fights To Delay Disciplinary Trial

Loyda Colon, a co-director of the organization Justice Committee, said on Tuesday that Pantaleo’s attempt to have a state court judge dismiss the trial — this time questioning the CCRB’s authority to prosecute — was a stall tactic.

“It's infuriating that we have to be here today,” Colon said. “It's almost five years since Eric Garner was choked to death by Daniel Pantaleo, while other officers just stood around and did absolutely nothing to help Eric while he screamed ‘I can't breathe’ 11 times.”
