Eric Garner’s Daughter Tweets Address of Police Officer Involved in Her Father’s Death

Screen Shot 2014-12-26 at 3.48.17 PMEric Garner’s daughter Erica gave her Twitter followers a different kind of Christmas present this year.  Garner tweeted out the address of a police officer who was present during the choking of her father.

Garner tweeted that cop Justin D’Amico was “another officer that helped killed [sic] my dad,” and then directed her 5,000-plus Twitter followers to a Web page that lists addresses for D’Amico and five possible relatives.

D’Amico received immunity from testifying before the Staten Island grand jury that failed to indict officer Daniel Pantaleo, the officer responsible for Eric Garner’s July 17 death.

The link was posted to a page on the pastebin.com Web site, which lets users anonymously post text documents for public viewing. She said that her tweet was “just something light” and hashtagged #Doxx, referencing the online practice of revealing private details about people’s lives.

The tweet that was posted at 1:45 a.m. was soon deleted, but not before it was viewed and retweeted over 500 times, according to information acquired by the New York Post.

An NYPD source was quick to place the blame on Garner and told the Post that the tweet was “disgusting” and “poses grave danger” to D’Amico and his family.

“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.

This comes less than a week after a man shot and killed NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, which has put police officers on high alert.

The head of the NYPD sergeants union, Ed Mullins, called the tweet “terrible behavior that continues to cause divisive actions throughout the city. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” he added, insinuating that Eric Garner was a “bad apple.”

Garner’s family lawyer Jonathan Moore says that he didn’t know what exactly was in the link that Erica posted. “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,” he told The Post.

    revealing the name of anyone responsible for killing her father is NOT the problem. the obvious lack of respect and dignity shown to their victims from the nypd IS! they want everyone to behave as if they are owed what they won't give to others. including the family of the man THEY MURDERED even while their disrespect continues after his death to him and his family.

    this is THE problem:

  2. Do you know how easy it is to say, "Erica, I want to give my deepest sympathy for the time you are going through. The pain, the hurt, the confusion, it all takes its toll on us at times like these. Just keep your head high and keep strong with God on your search for peace and contentment."

  3. actually its kinda really fucking sickening that they actually had the fucking balls to hide behind concrete and say some shit like that. this is just gunna get worse. we are not kindergartners. fuck them assholes, I hope people do show up to their houses. i hope they resign. force them out.

    Victor, I agree with you about how easy that would be. IMO it's so easy as one human being to another that I feel that the nypd is deliberate in it's actions towards the exact opposite. what I truly have a problem with is the law enforcement community's attitude and behavior that ALWAYS puts them above everyone else in all circumstances such as pain, anguish, survival, respect, dignity, and HUMANITY. I will never accept or abide with that and I am repulsed by the DEMAND for it. again, IMO if one can ignore the golden rule in all circumstances by CHOICE, I see no reason for me to accept and abide injustice and uncaring for others. we would all be better off if "we did unto others as we wanted done to us"!

    Your summary shows you misunderstood what happened. If you don't understand what happened, you can't be trusted with the rest of your assessment.

    What good does it do posting the addresses of the officer and his relatives.

    the divide in america is clear.

    The apple does not fall far from the tree. A killer cop, does not fall far from the tree of killer cops. This one mentioned was there…. Did not try and stop this murder. Did not try and save Eric. So, it would be safe to assume that these cops acted together in murdering an American Citizen and then arresting the man that video taped police murdering said American. Of course, who's to say if the same killer cops did not frame said video taker….as he is the only one indicted for a crime involving this murder.

  9. Ray Flower says:

    What good is murdering an American on the street, for allegedly selling single cigarettes? What good does it to allow witness' you know 100% are lying to testify in front of a grand jury (mike brown). What good does it to turn your backs to authority when all you've been doing is whining about the lack of respect for YOUR authority.

  10. I don't see the situation between cops and the community getting better. They always talk about cops lives are in danger with what they do everyday , however it is seen over and over again how they instigate situation and never get checked. Also all over social media you see white suspect being talked down even with a gun in their hand but they will NOT handle the situation with blacks the same. Also the mainstream media is in on this because they have the opportunity to show that different , however they Never do it. They need a code of conduct just as many mental health profession have even if a patient is spitting on you you have to remain in that code of conduct , what could be wrong with cops doing the same.

    They need to tweet EVERY cop's address that is involved in a deadly shooting of an unarmed person. That way these senseless killings of an unarmed person STOPS at the source….They should tweet the address for Darren Wilson, the cop that murdered Michael Brown…His address is all over the internet….
