It’s no secret that Eric Garner’s daughter thinks the city of New York could’ve done more for her father. Erica Garner has publicly spoken out against Mayor Bill de Blasio’s handling of her dad’s July 2014 death at the hands of NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo, and it appears she has more to say.
Garner blasted de Blasio Thursday for not releasing disciplinary records on Officer Pantaleo. The 43-year-old father died after being placed in an illegal chokehold by him while being detained for selling loose cigarettes.
Taking to Twitter, Garner let the world know just what she thought of Mayor de Blasio and it wasn’t pretty.
“Just cause you love Black p***y don’t mean you love Black lives…cc @BilldeBlasio,” she wrote on the social networking site.
New York Daily News reports that Mayor de Blasio claims he wants to release the documents, but is barred from releasing the records because of state law that the NYPD and the city ignored for nearly 30 years. He, along with the NYPD, insist Section 50-A of the state civil rights law prevents the records’ release.
A Staten Island grand jury cleared Pantaleo in Garner’s death in Dec. 2014. Garner went on to accuse the mayor, along with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo of “pimpin Black lives.”
“Cuomo is a b***h! so is De Blasio! They be pimpin Black lives for votes too…JUST LIKE #HILLARY!”
De Blasio declined to comment on the critical remarks.
