NAACP Statements Regarding Staten Island Medical Examiner’s Homicide Ruling in Police Chokehold Death of Eric Garner

Black news from Pasadena - National News - NAACP on Eric Garner decisionCornell William Brooks, NAACP President and CEO:

"The NAACP will continue to monitor and advocate for justice on behalf of Mr. Eric Garner and his family. We believe that yesterday's ruling by the Staten Island medical examiner is an important first step in the journey towards full accountability by the New York police officers who meted out this heinous crime — as well as the public servants who failed to assist a victim in need. The citizens of New York deserve law enforcement that both protects and respects the public."

Hazel N. Dukes, NAACP New York State Conference President:

"[The] decision was a step in the right direction. I stand along with the NAACP Staten Island Branch President Edward C. Josey, New York and the entire community to see that justice is served for Mr. Garner. We will be closely watching the investigation—and working to see that violence against our community at the hands of the police ends."
