Statement of Councilwoman Mendez on the Tragic Death of Eric Garner

“The New York City Police Department must have a full and transparent investigation regarding the incident involving Eric Garner. In order to maintain good relationships between New Yorkers and the NYPD, the City of New York must ensure that Eric Garner’s tragic death is completely and thoroughly investigated. The video footage captured is troubling. I applaud the Mayor and the Police Commissioner for responding to this deeply sad incident and taking the proper next steps to determine what happened.”
