Esaw Garner at NAN

After a Staten Island grand jury on Wednesday decided to not indict New York Police Department officer in the death of Eric Garner, the unarmed Black man whose death while in a chokehold was captured on video, police officer Daniel Pantaleo tweeted his condolences:

 

However, Garner’s grieving widow Esaw was not having it.

During a press conference at the National Action Network headquarters in New York City Wednesday evening, she answered a reporter who asked if she accepted Pantaleo’s apology by saying, “Hell, no! The time for remorse was when my husband was yelling to breathe. That would have been the time to show some type of remorse, or some type of care for another human being’s life, when [Eric Garner] was screaming 11 times that he can’t breathe. So there’s nothing that [Pantaleo], or his prayers or anything else that would make me feel any different. No, I don’t accept his apology, I could care less about his condolences.”
