Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed the gruesome murder of Eric Garner was sentenced to four-years in prison, after accepting a plea deal for weapon and drug charges. Mr. Orta claims he was repeatedly harassed by police since the film he recorded of NYPD officers killing Mr. Garner by a chokehold, was released to the public.
