10.5.16

Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed Eric Garner’s death, has been sentenced to 4 years in prison.

Supporters of Orta have claimed that the drug and gun related charges are serving as retaliation for him filming Eric Garner’s final moments. The police charged Ramsey with selling heroin, crack cocaine, marijuana, oxycodone and anti-anxiety pills to an undercover cop nine times.

During his sentencing, protesters chanted, “No justice no peace! F–k these racist police!”
