After Pantaleo was cleared by the Staten Island grand jury, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association released a statement on the cop’s behalf. “I hope that they will accept my personal condolences for their loss,” he said.
Garner’s widow was clear.
“No, I don’t accept his apology,” she said Wednesday night at the Harlem headquarters of the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network. “I could care less about his condolences. My husband is 6 feet under. (The cop) is still working. He’s still collecting a paycheck and I’m looking for a way to feed my kids.”

Sharpton abruptly ended the press conference and started to usher the grieving woman away from the podium. She shouted one last plea:
“Who’s going to play Santa Claus for my grandchildren?”
Listen, the Ferguson thing seems like there was some evidence that proves that the cop was in his right to defend himself. But this video of Eric Garner getting strangled to death for selling loosies is absolutely disgusting. If the FEDs don’t try this cop and sentence him to something serious then no exaggeration the world might cease to exist. Cops can’t just kill people. What the fuck is going on in this world. Fuck.
