Erica, his oldest daughter, came to play a major part in that movement, staging frequent "die ins" at the spot in Staten Island where her father died, making many media appearances, and often marching against police brutality. "We didn't deserve her". The person running her popular Twitter account told Garner's 35,000 followers Wednesday that a CT scan revealed that she had suffered brain damage "from lack of oxygen while in cardiac arrest". She died in a NY hospital.

"I will always love you my sister. love you", read a statement via Erica Garner's official Twitter account.

Accumulate, 27, experienced the impacts of an expanded heart in the wake of bringing forth her child three months prior, Snipes said. We'll do it your way, then I'm gonna do it different than you'. "She fought the good fight".

"When you report this you recall that she was human: mother, little girl, sister, close relative. Nobody gave her equity". NYPD officers later called an ambulance for Garner after noticing his breathing difficulty, but he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Garner's father had also suffered from asthma. Officer Daniel Pantaleo placed Garner in an unlawful chokehold; after being lowered to the ground, Garner was restrained by several officers. His obvious last words - "I can't relax!" In 2016, she campaigned on behalf of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, an independent, for president. In a 2015 op-ed in the Guardian, she warned that "conflicts can destroy movements" and anxious about those seeking fame and media attention instead of real change.

His demise was ruled a murder, yet an fantastic jury chose not to arraign Pantaleo on criminal allegations.




Shaun King, a prominent United States journalist and activist, said on Saturday that "we're less because of this loss".

A reality teller. As bona fide and true of a spirit you'll ever experience.

Erica Garner became a voice for police accountability after his death, criticizing Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio over policing matters.

"Erica Garner's demise is a horrendous disaster".

Sanders in a series of tweets on Saturday sent his condolences to Garner's family, characterizing her as an "exceptional young woman" and "fighter for justice" who will not be forgotten. "She left on her own terms". She was a fierce protector of her friends and family. In a series of tweets after the meeting, Erica Garner again stressed that she wanted to see progress on the investigation.

When her son was born in August, she named him after her father.
