Eric Garner, 43, whose videotaped confrontation with police has caused nationwide outcry and calls by Rev. Al Sharpton for federal prosecution. Garner was killed by ‘the compression of his chest and prone positioning during physical restraint by police,’ said Julie Bolcer medical examiner spokeswoman. The chokehold used by a white police officer on Eric Garner, during his arrest for selling untaxed, loose cigarettes last month caused his death.
