  1. It’s a shame it to this long to fire him.

  2. Fired! This goon cop needs to be charged & sentenced & sent to prison & not be just fired!

  3. Why would a cop even try to arrest someone for selling loose cigarettes in a city like NYC? In a city like NYC, I’m pretty sure there’s far more serious crimes being committed than that. I guarantee you there are people down on Wall Street like Bernie Madoff that deserve to be choked out for the crimes they’re committing as we speak.

    • Sir Loxley Mendoza
      And now Pantaleo is out of a job, and the victim’s family are millionaires. 😂

    • @David J The way BLM works today! Born lazy afrovictims Gardners became millionares on NY City funds trough the crime act and honest working NYPD officer Pantaleo is out of job because 7 feet tall born lazy dindunufin-Gardner apparently resisted his arrest. While stupid liberal prater Mayor DeBlasio smoked weed with his afro wife at home.. 😂

      They never found any cigarettes.

    • Yeah other crimes like kids getting shot for their shoes. But the media feeds on this because it’s a white cop and a black man. We all know the game. Just like I always said just put your hands up don’t resist. I went through this too. But I grew up. Still alive thank God. No I’m not remorseful when I know how I was when I didn’t want to go to jail. Bottom line stop resisting the cops that’s how this tragedy stops. TRUTH!

  4. Getting fired for MURDER is a joke to justice.


  6. oh good… so now his future attacker won’t be charged with assaulting a police officer

  7. This is murder jail should be the next step not fired

    Even with the use of force continuum, once someone is starting to comply the officer should lower the use of force that they are using, if someone is not armed nor has a deadly weapon, the officer if necessary can use deadly force if seen as necessary. Further more, the courts must look at the perspective of what the officer was feeling, doing and seeing rather than look from the civilians perspective. I’m not stating that what the officer did was right nor was it legal in most ways, but I’m just stating facts about article 35 use of force in the state of New York.

    (Copy and Paste from Article 35 Penal Law Use of Deadly Force In New York State):
    (a) to defend himself or a third person from what he reasonably
    believes to be the use or imminent use of deadly physical force; or
    (b) to effect an arrest or to prevent the escape from custody of a
    person whom he reasonably believes (i) has committed or attempted
    to commit a felony involving the use or threatened use of deadly
    physical force, or (ii) is attempting to escape by the use of a deadly
    weapon, or (iii) otherwise indicates that he is likely to endanger
    human life or to inflict serious physical injury unless apprehended
    without delay

  11. He can join the LAPD next

    WTF? He got fired five years after he murdered a man.
    I thought he had been in jail for the last 5 years.
    This world is like Bizarro world on steroids.

    You may disagree, but this old former cop thinks employment of a banned choke hold until the suspect is dead is Murder.

  14. You can hear the undertone justification. All those small notes of appraisal for the officer being fired.

    Meanwhile, the DNC is being investigated. The media coverage? …crickets…

    Why did it takes so long,  he murder Mr. Garner   lock him up

  17. I’d get fired if I took a week off and didn’t tell anyone.
    This guy murdered someone on video tape and it took five years for him to get fired.
    This attempt at criminal justice isn’t justice. It’s just criminal.

    Took long enough ,, it means they wouldn’t have fired him if not for all the outrage, and the election coming up . Criminals run the show now .
