Activist Erica Garner, daughter of police chokehold victim, dies after heart attack

Erica Garner, who became a civil rights activist against police brutality after the death of her father in 2014, has died aged 27.

Erica Garner turned into an unmistakable dissident in the wake of her dad's passing, pushing for political change and social equity comprehensively lined up with the Black Lives Matter development.

Eric Garner died in 2014 after New York City police officers put him in a chokehold, a move the NYPD had banned.

Days before the anniversary of her father's death in 2015, she led a march through the streets of St. George and Tompkinsville, as part of a week-long series of events planned to honor his legacy and raise awareness of what she believed was a trend of police brutality in the country. She was always at rallies, she was always calling me, 'Reverend, we'll do this.

Her official twitter account, being run by her family, said she had suffered major brain damage from a lack of oxygen.

"She was a warrior, she was a fighter, and we didn't pull the plug on her", Snipes, Garner's mother, told the New York Daily News. She was great. She just sought after right, regardless. "This is just the first fight in 27 years she lost".

In December 2014, a grand jury decided not to indict the New York Police Department officer who put Eric Garner in a chokehold, Daniel Pantaleo. A truth teller.

The mother of two, who resides in Brooklyn, went into cardiac arrest Saturday night after suffering an asthma attack, her family has said in media interviews and on social media. "Her heart was assaulted by a framework that would gag her father and not consider responsible those that did it". "Her heart was attacked by a system that would choke her dad and not hold accountable those that did it".
