chokehold death by NYPDThe eight-year NYPD veteran officer who was caught on video putting a Staten Island man in a chokehold has been stripped of his gun and his shield.

Officer Daniel Pantaleo was placed on modified duty Saturday as cops and the Staten Island district attorney investigated the case.  This comes after a shocking new video shows Eric Garner, lying handcuffed and unresponsive on a sidewalk, received zero medical help from cops who instead just emptied his pockets.

The seven-minute clip posted Saturday on YouTube shows an apparently lifeless Garner, whose head droops to the side as at least eight cops stand nearby.

“C’mon guy,” one cop says to Garner, the only thing on the video that suggests any of the officers was trying to help the man. “Breathe in, breathe out.”

But Garner, lying on his side with his eyes closed, doesn’t move at all — even when the officer slaps him on the shoulder. The side of his head remains flat against the concrete, and his eyes never open.
