Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/02/2014 - 05:59

Esaw Garner is shown during the funeral for her husband Eric Garner at Bethel Baptist Church in Brooklyn New YorkBy Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - The death of a man during an arrest last month in New York City was caused by a choke hold by a police officer, the chief medical examiner's office said on Friday, declaring the death a homicide. Eric Garner's dying moments as he struggled for breath on a Staten Island sidewalk after police arrested him for peddling untaxed cigarettes on July 17 were captured in bystanders' videos, and prompted outrage and questions about police tactics. The autopsy results released on Friday appear to settle any remaining doubts the police officer's choke hold helped kill him. The city's police force has been banned from using the maneuver for more than 20 years, and the city has said it is investigating why the practice appears to persist.
