It has also been revealed that the New York Police Department officer who was filmed putting Eric Garner in a chokehold has had two prior civil rights complaints against him. One resulted in the city paying $30,000 to two men who were unlawfully strip-searched. The other lawsuit, which is still pending, alleges an unlawful arrest.
