Police Chokehold
Complaints in Wake
of SI Man's Death
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio has delayed his ten-day Italian vacation in light of
the death of Staten Island resident Eric Garner, who died on Thursday.

City Hall announced ahead of de Blasio’s scheduled ­departure on Friday that “[t]
he mayor will postpone the departure for his upcoming family vacation to
Saturday, in order to attend to city business,” the New York Post reports.

Garner, 43, died after NYPD officers placed him a chokehold--a practice that's
been banned from the department for over 20 years--while arresting him for
charges stemming from illegal cigarette sales, the New York Times reports.

Postpones Italian
Vacation In Light Of
Man's Chokehold Death
A video shows Garner, who has asthma, shouting “I can’t breathe” as officers
push him to the ground on Staten Island.

On Friday, de Blasio said “[l]ike so many New Yorkers I was very troubled by
the video.” According to de Blasio's press secretary, Phil Walzak, the decision to
postpone his family vacation was made so he could "spend more time making
calls to elected officials, community leaders and members of the clergy, and
talking to the police" in the wake of Garner's death, the Times reports.
