Eric Garner's widow, Esaw Garner, speaks at a rally in Brooklyn to call for justice for Eric Garner one year after he died in an apparent police chokehold on July 18, 2015 in New York City. The rally of several hundred people was held in front of the U.S. Attorney's Office in Downtown Brooklyn. Members of Garner's family joined Sharpton in demanding a federal investigation into his death. Garner, who was killed in a controversial choke-hold by a Staten Island police officer, had been approached by police for selling loose cigarettes. His death set off waves of protests around the city and country. Garner's family has settled with the city for 5.9 million in a wrongful death suit.
