An unjustified death that sparked a national outrage

The city medical examiner has ruled the death of Eric Garner, the 43-year old father who died in police custody last month, a homicide, saying a chokehold caused his death according to CBS News.

The medical examiner spokeswoman Julie Bolcer said the compression of his chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police in the July 17 incident in Staten Island, was what killed the unarmed man.

Garners asthma, obesity and hypertensive cardiovascular disease were also contributing factors, Bolcer determined.

Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who put Garner in the illegal chokehold, has been stripped of his gun and badge awaiting an internal NYPD investigation and another unidentified police officer has also been placed on desk duty. Two paramedics and two EMTs were suspended without pay after allegedly deteriorating to provide CPR in a timely manner. 

Below is the original video of Garner's run in with the NYPD that would prove to be his last:
