Finally someone involved in the Eric Garner case has finally been convicted. Unfortunately for justice, the person convicted was not one of the New York city police officers who modern-day lynched Eric Garner on film.
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.

New York became the first state to appoint a special prosecutor for police related civilian deaths, when on tuesday New York governor Andrew M. Cuomo issued an executive order naming the state attorney general as the special prosecutor for police-related civilian deaths.
This came after the national outrage when an Eric Garner, an unarmed African-American was seen on video being choked to death by New York police on staten Island.
Despite the chokehold not being allowed under police rules and the medical examiner ruling Mr. Garner’s death a homicide, the grand jury refused to indict the police officer who murdered Eric Garner.
