Justice Department to charge officer in death of Eric Garner

Following a shakeup in the federal case for the death of Eric Garner, the Justice Department is reportedly actively seeking to charge Daniel Pantaleo, the officer who put Garner in the fatal chokehold.

On Tuesday, a source in law enforcement said that, with the ouster of New York-based FBI agents and prosecutors, who were replaced with Washington-based counterparts, an indictment was highly likely. “It’s going to happen sooner than later,” the source said. “Washington wants to indict him.”

The New York federal agents are reportedly furious, claiming that their Washington replacements are trying to “make an example out of Pantaleo.”

“We already … came to a conclusion which they didn’t like. It’s truly disgraceful what they’re doing,” the source said in response to the outcry from the New York-based agents.
