Eric Garner’s Widow Rejects Bill de Blasio Claim

Esaw Garner Snipes, the widow of Eric Garner, on Friday said that presidential candidate and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is “full of malarkey” when asked about his discussion of Garner’s case during this week’s Democratic debate.

“He’s full of malarkey. I’ve met him on several occasions. It just so happened that that particular day after the Department of Justice gave us their decision they were on a conference call and my daughter was actually in the room with Mayor de Blasio and he didn’t even remember my name. You know, it was very disheartening and very callous.”

“They’re just passing the buck. one is blaming the other, whose responsibility is it, you know who has the power to do this or do that,” she added.

When Officer Pantaleo and his partner ­arrived, they saw Garner doing it again illegally selling cigarettes. The police weren’t harassing him, they weren’t acting with bias, they were responding to a call. When they confronted him, he refused to answer their questions and then refused to be taken into custody.

Garner refused to comply with police demands to be arrested; he resisted arrest. The officer tried two other holds on him first, without success, so Garner must have continued to resist arrest.

If Garner had simply obeyed the police and not resisted arrest, he would still be alive today.

The police officer did nothing wrong. The grand jury did not indict and the Feds did not bring civil rights charges against him, all based on the facts of the case.
