Cops from Precinct that Killed Eric Garner Involved in Similar Murder

Three cops at embattled NYPD precinct where Eric Garner died after chokehold disciplined over 'accidental' death

A police review panel has recommended disciplinary charges against three Staten Island cops — all assigned to the precinct already under fire in Eric Garner’s death — for using excessive force and failing to get medical treatment for a 52-year-old man who died while in custody, the Daily News has learned.

A lawsuit filed this week in Brooklyn Federal Court says Irving Mizell was beaten by cops who arrested him on March 7, 2013, after he violated an order of protection his girlfriend had against him.
