    Live updates: NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo fired - CNN

    Not surprising, since the Judge reviewing the case recommended it, and the current Police Chief is nothing more than a DiBlasio shill.

    Needless to say the PBA isn't happy about this:

    The police officer can go across the river and get a job with the NJPD or even WWE. If he can wrestle the likes of Eric to the floor, he could definately compete with the brutes of professional wrestling.

    Sorry, but this firing was political, not administrative. and He was only one of several cops trying to take Garner down, but the only one fired.

    In Deblasio world, someone must be punished, but not the criminal, sorta like the discussion we are having in the $2 beer fest.

    it's already creeping up, as are the old indicators of general lawlessness, sleeping homeless on the subway, and panhandlers.

    If I break a policy at work I'm likely going to get fired. If I break a policy at work and someone dies, you can bet I am going to get fired.

    I have no idea why some hold a police officer to a different standard. Just do what you are instructed and no one gets fired.

    There was no criminal here but someone still died because a police officer ignored policy.

    There is a serious question as to if he intended to apply a chokehold, or was just wrestling with a very large, resisting man, along with other officers.

    The Admin Judge called it a chokehold, but many disagree.
