It’s been almost six years since a New York City officer wrapped an arm around Eric Garner’s neck, put him in a choke hold and pulled him to the ground. His repeated cries of “I can’t breathe” transformed into a rally slogan against police brutality—an issue that has dominated national attention in recent weeks over the death of George Floyd.

Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr, joined Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday as the Democrat greenlit a ban on police choke holds statewide and the repeal of a decades-old law used to shield police disciplinary records from the public.
