Eric Garner’s daughter created an explosive Christmas Day by posting personal information of one of the New York cops who was witnessed the infamous chokehold death of her father, incensing officers who were jolted to the core from last week’s execution-style slayings of two policemen in Brooklyn.
On a Twitter account, Erica Garner Justin D’Amico was “another officer that helped killed [sic] my dad,” showed the link to her 5,000-plus Twitter lists addresses for D’Amico and five possible relatives, the New York Post reports.
The publication said the tweet was viewed 500 times before Erica Garner deleted it. By that time, the damage was done.
For the daughter to do this less than a week after crazed cops fatally shot cops Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, following the shooter’s online post that said he planned to avenge the police killings of Eric Garner on Staten Island and Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.
Police officials were obviously irate at the daughter.
“She clearly wants someone to go to the officer’s house and assassinate him in cold blood just like Ramos and Liu,” the source said.
Ed Mullins, the president of the NYPD sergeants union, Ed Mullins, termed the post “terrible behavior that continues to cause divisive actions throughout the city.”
“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” Mullins added.
D’Amico is the officer who received immunity to testify before New York County grand jury in a case that vindicated Daniel Pantaleo in Eric Garner’s chokehold death.
This is happening admid the Garner family’s $75 million suit against the city, and the family lawyer said Erica Garner “did not have any knowledge of what was in those links.”
“Nobody in the Garner family, including Erica, would consciously send information out about the personal address or phone number or any identifying information about the police officers, particularly after what happened to those two officers,” Moore said.
