NYPD, Union Furious After Eric Garner’s Daughter Posts Cop’s Personal Information

NYPD officers are furious after one of Eric Garner’s daughters on Christmas Day posted personal information about an NYPD cop who was present during the arrest and subsequent death of her father. The post outraging officers still reeling from last weekend’s execution-style slayings of two policemen in Brooklyn.

Erica Garner tweeted that Justin D’Amico was “another officer that helped killed [sic] my dad,” which was linked to a Web page that lists ­addresses for D’Amico and five possible relatives.

According to the report, the tweet was viewed roughly 500 times before Garner’s stunning tweet was deleted following inquiries by The New York Post.

The incredibly irresponsible move came less than a week after a gunman claiming revenge for Eric Garner and Michael Brown fatally shot NYPD Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu, and at a time when cops were on high alert over dozens of copy-cat threats this week that have led to more than a half-dozen arrests.

Ed Mullins, the head of the NYPD sergeants union, said the tweet was “terrible behavior that continues to cause divisive actions throughout the city.”

“The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” he added.

D’Amico got immunity to testify before the Staten Island grand jury that cleared fellow cop Daniel Pantaleo of wrongdoing in Eric Garner’s July 17 death. Garner was resisting arrest when police found him illegally peddling loose cigarettes.

In her 1:45 a.m. tweet, Erica Garner posted a link to a page on the pastebin.com Web site, which lets users anonymously post plain-text documents for public viewing.

She called the information about D’Amico “just something light” and included the hashtag #Doxx, which refers to the online practice of revealing private details about people’s lives.

Garner family lawyer Jonathan Moore, who is preparing a $75 million suit against the city, didn’t deny that Erica Garner posted the tweet, but maintained that she “did not have any knowledge of what was in those links.”

“Nobody in the Garner family, including Erica, would consciously send information out about the personal address or phone number or any identifying information about the police officers, particularly after what happened to those two officers,” Moore said.

  • Michael Brown’s mother throws a rampage and assaults and robs relatives. His father incites the mob which burned down Ferguson. Now this sweetheart is doxxing the cops who have been exonerated in her father’s accident, in a city where executing police officers is “the new Black”.

    It’s all about the old Afro-activist demand that they be allowed to do whatever criminal act they wish with no consequences. Not only are they rioting in favor of dead cops, but the want prisons abolished, too. And if they don’t get their way, they promise to hijack anything that moves and shut down anything that doesn’t.

    There will always be a constant flow of dead blacks killed by cops; every day or two brings another. That will not stop. The neurotic afro-rage will always have something to feed upon. But the politicians are acting as if the whole thing will go away, as if every new corpse is a total surprise, as if the summary body count isn’t going to enflame the situation as every new day passes.

    The protests must be stopped by outside agency – military force, in simple terms. Now. Waiting buys nothing; the unrest will not burn itself out. The risk only grows. It is not possible to decrease the killing; therefore, it is likely only increasing the killing will change things.

    Reality check: it can’t go on, it can’t be let get worse, and it won’t be pretty to bring to an end.


    • Wtf are you talking about? All this made up mumbo jumbo you posted proves that you need to be committed asap.

    • Sure, lets trample on the Constitution, you Nazi. You’re far from an American patriot. Our Constitution grants us freedom to protest. Go to hell. You can’t stop us. No one can. Why don’t you move to Cuba or Russia like the Communist scum that you are.

  • NYPD and the police union can go to you nowhere. Ed Mullins is dog trash.

  • Don’t go into the black areas and let them fend for themselves
