Chokehold Death Settlement

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio pauses as he speaks during a memorial service for Eric Garner at the Mount Sinai United Christian Church in the Staten Island borough of New York Tuesday, July 14, 2015, just short of a year after Garner died while being taken into custody by New York City police officers. A $5.9 million settlement in Garner’s death, a black man who died after being placed in a white police officer’s chokehold, was reached with the city this week, days before the anniversary of his death.
