July 16, 2015 at 5:00 AM (PT)
One year ago this week, 43-year old ERIC GARNER’s death touched off a firestorm of discussion, outrage and protest about police brutality in NEW YORK CITY. It eventually evolved into the proverbial epicenter of debate for the entire nation.
This week, CUMULUS News/Talk WABC-A/NEW YORK takes an in-depth look at the ERIC GARNER case in the three-part special series: "GARNER: One Year Later." WABC News’ KEN DUFFY spoke with ERICA GARNER, GARNER's eldest daughter, ED MULLINS, head of the NYPD's Sergeants Benevolent Association, and ALEX VITALE, sociology professor from BROOKLYN COLLEGE. The special series seeks to answer pressing questions: What's the impact on GARNER's family? How are police officers viewed in the eyes of the public? And what else can be done to improve police-community relations?
The WABC News Special report, “Garner: One Year Later” airs this week in the 5a and 5p hours and is available on demand at wabcradio.com.
