LatinoJustice PRLDEF Statement on Judge Maldonado's Recommendation for Cop Who Fatally Chocked Eric Garner To Be Fired
 

Jeronimo Saldana, Co‑Director of the Reenvision Justicia project at LatinoJustice, released the following statement:

“For many of us, Eric Garner’s death was a painful example of the terror our communities face on an everyday basis at the hands of unscrupulous police officers. As news of Judge Maldonado’s recommendation to fire Daniel Pantaleo come to light, LatinoJustice continues to stand with Gwen Carr and the rest of the Garner family in this years-long pursuit for justice for Eric Garner. While we strongly support Judge Maldonado's recommendation as an important first step towards justice, we continue to call for the firing and charging of all the officers responsible for this preventable tragedy.”
