A shocking new video has begun to circulate the internet showing a tense encounter between a 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad and police.
Eric Garner, 43, died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, according to video of the incident.
Witnesses said, prior to the encounter Garner was involved in breaking up a fight that was occurring along the sidewalk.
This happened in front of a Tompkinsville, NY beauty supply store.
A Facebook page has been set up to fight for justice for the 43-year-old father.
