Officer charged as part of investigation of Eric Garner’s Death
Today I got word that an officer was charged in my fathers death. At first I was excited but then I read the news reports,
An NYPD sergeant was stripped of her gun and shield Friday after she was brought up on departmental charges in the July 2014 chokehold death of Eric Garner, police said.
Sgt. Kizzy Adonis was placed on modified duty, with a charge of “failure to supervise,” according to a union official. The NYPD provided no details on the case against her.
Adonis was one of the supervising officers at the scene of Garner’s death during his arrest 18 months ago for selling illegal loose cigarettes. Charges are likely against a second NYPD sergeant, sources told the Daily News.
Adonis told investigators “the perpetrator’s condition did not seem serious and that he did not appear to get worse,” according to an internal report by the NYPD. – NY Daily News
