Upon the announcement that Officer Daniel Pantaleo would not be indicted for choking and ultimately killing Staten Island man Eric Garner, Pantaleo issued an official statement expressing remorse and apologizing to the Garner family.
Eric Garner’s widow, Esaw Garner, was asked whether she accepted that apology in a press conference Wednesday night.
While answering the reporter’s question here was Mrs. Garner’s response…
Hell no! The time for remorse would have been when my husband was yelling to breathe, that would have been the time for him to show some type of remorse, or some type of care for another human being’s life, when he was screaming 11 times that he can’t breathe. So there is nothing that him or his prayers or his anything else would make me feel any different. No I don’t accept his apology, no I could care less about his condolences, no I could care less. He’s still working, he’s still getting a paycheck, he’s still feeding his kids, and my husband is six feet under and I’m looking for a way to feed my kids now. – Esaw Garner via ch.7
