On Monday, the disciplinary trial of the New York City police officer who put an unarmed Eric Garner in a fatal chokehold will begin. Business Insider reports, nearly five years ago, a widely seen video of the death sparked a national outcry about policing tactics. Daniel Pantaleo could be fired after the conclusion of what is expected to be a 10-day trial at the NYPD’s headquarters in Manhattan. The ultimate decision will rest with New York City Police Commissioner James O’Neill. The case will be closely watched by civil rights activists who say too few police officers face consequences for using deadly force.
