NEW YORK - Friday marks the one-year anniversary of Eric Garner's death in police custody after an apparent chokehold.
Garner's family reached a nearly $6 million settlement with New York City just days ago, but they say they are still looking for closure. The family wants a federal case against the officer involved.
Early Friday morning, Garner's 1-year-old daughter and her mother released a white dove in his memory right at the very spot where Garner lost his life. His daughter was only a few months old when he died.
This weekend there will be a memorial mass and a rally in Garner’s honor. His sister Elisha said, “This morning it was really hard, heavy because we miss him. I can still hear his voice.”
Friday night at the Restoration Center in Brooklyn the family will host an All White Party.”
