Daniel Pantaleo’s salary is $119,996 . That’s a 14 percent increase from what he was making when he killed Eric Garner. On the other hand, the brave civilian who filmed the killing and suffered protracted police harassment as a result, is now incarcerated.
A whistleblower in New York has just leaked a couple pages from Pantaleo’s disciplinary record. Resist the temptation to believe there isn’t paperwork like this in the files of cops employed in Washtenaw County; resist, too, the idea that the system will protect you from them.
