New York City officials say that the family of Eric Garner just rejected their cash settlement offer of $5,000,000. The money was offered in order to settle a suit filed in the wrongful death of Garner, 43, after an NYPD police officer choked him to death for selling lose cigarettes in New York City.

    Garner’s widow Esaw Garner, said there is no way they would let the NYPD get away with killing Garner and paying such a relatively small amount.

    But the NYPD did not kill the man the cop did. Does bankrupting NYC and police dept bring justice? Does harming all the citizens of NYC by getting reduced service mean punishment? If they win something from the tragedy and send a message to law enforcement does that stop the next whack job cop from doing the same thing? I do not mean to suggest that I do not grieve with the family in the sense that I would also be heartbroken it it happened to a loved one of mine.

    • After this, I read they had accepted a bit higher offer. Don’t know what the actual situation is. Guess that the way to send their message … since the cop got away w/o consequences!
