By Emily M. O’ConnellIn the days following the NYPD’s controversial decision to deploy a chokehold on Garner, the New Yorker’s Markle had to explain how the department’s decision was justified.
“This was not about me,” she wrote in an article for the publication.
“It was about me and my family.”
Markle’s account, along with those of several other journalists, has been corroborated by hundreds of witnesses and a number of other sources.
They corroborate a number different aspects of the events that led to the decision to use the chokehold, including that Garner was in his late 20s when the officer placed the choke hold on him.
“I’m an older woman,” Garner’s mother told the New Yorkers that the choke held.
“The NYPD is a violent force.
They don’t want to be associated with me.”
According to sources close to the Garner case, the police department’s justification for using the choke holds on Garner was not based on evidence or a thorough investigation.
Instead, it was based on an officer’s perception of what he perceived to be Garner’s age.
The chokehold that the officers used on Garner in a choke hold in Brooklyn was a choke holds from the NYPD.
According to NYPD spokesman, Officer Daniel Pantaleo, Garner was over 25 at the time of the choke, and he did not appear to have any history of mental illness.
The NYPD did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment on the NewYork Magazine article.
According to the NYPD, in the months leading up to Garner’s death, the department was under investigation for alleged misconduct in the investigation of the incident.
The New York Post has reported that the department has been under investigation since the mid-2016 election, and several other outlets have reported that an internal investigation is ongoing.
At the time the choke-hold was deployed, the NYPD had a backlog of at least six to seven thousand arrest warrants.
According the New Republic, a law enforcement analyst at the University of Virginia’s Center for Urban Research, there are approximately 300,000 police-involved shootings each year.
According the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, there were more than 3,500 choke holds deployed in the 2016 fiscal year.
That figure is based on a study conducted by the New Orleans Police Department.
According a spokesperson for the Attorney General, the data “includes no arrests, and is based solely on officer reports.”
While Garner was allegedly selling loose cigarettes in the middle of the night, the choke is a choke and the police cannot stop Garner from breathing.
According, the Garner family has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit against the NYPD and the NYPD in the New Hampshire Supreme Court, asking that the decision be thrown out on jurisdictional grounds.
The lawsuit argues that the NYPD violated Garner’s constitutional rights and the Fourth Amendment by arresting him without cause and then deploying a choke-holding device on him without probable cause.
Garner is also suing the New Black Panther Party and other organizations for “unjustified arrests.”
The NYPD has also filed a lawsuit in New York State, seeking $40 million in compensatory damages and $1.9 million in punitive damages.
The New York Police Department is not the only police department to use choke holds.
The department has also been accused of using choke holds against black men.
In the months following the incident, two NYPD officers were arrested on charges of obstructing an investigation into Garner’s killing.
In the aftermath of Garner’s arrest, the officer who used the choke was disciplined and released from the department.
The NYPD also released a statement that said the officer was being investigated for possible obstruction of justice and “conduct unbecoming a member of the New Haven Police Department.”
The New Jersey Police Department did not respond to a request for comment.
