Uh oh. This cop is toast. The Media won't let up now. Since they want to use this for a racial issue. Here the NYPD had come out talking about the Mayor, Governor, and President had thrown them under the bus. They aren't saying much now tho.
NEW YORK (Reuters) - The white New York City police officer who put unarmed black Staten Island resident Eric Garner in a chokehold moments before his death has been accused by other black men of violating their civil rights while he was on patrol. A grand jury's decision on Wednesday not to indict officer Daniel Pantaleo for his role in the videotaped confrontation that left 43-year-old Garner dead has sparked days of protests by groups claiming U.S. law enforcement unfairly targets African-Americans and other minorities.
Court filings obtained by Reuters on Friday show that four black men have sued Pantaleo over two separate 2012 incidents over claims of being stopped, strip-searched and arrested without cause. Pantaleo's attorney and New York City's legal department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Pantaleo and the other officers also strip searched the men in public while they were handcuffed, the lawsuit claimed. It also claimed that Pantaleo provided false evidence against the men and that he and the other officers arrested the men to meet quotas and collect overtime, among other reasons. Charges against Collins and Rice were later dismissed and sealed in Richmond County Criminal Court. The city settled the lawsuit in January, according to court filings. The terms were not disclosed.....snip~
