STATEN ISLAND (PIX11) -- Eric Garner's daughter led a rally in Staten Island Thursday evening.

His daughter, Erica, along with family and protesters met at Bay Street. They began marching at 5:45 p.m. to the spot where the slain father died and proceeded stage a die-in.

Earlier this week, Pantaleo went before the NYPD's Internal Affairs Board to see if he violated any of the department's guidelines. He testified for more than two hours Monday.

The officer has insisted he never meant to harm Garner and even extended his personal condolences to the Garner family. But some relatives say it's too little, too late.

"That was something off a cue card," Garner's cousin told PIX11 News in response to Pantaleo's apology.

During a press conference with Al Sharpton Dec. 3, Garner's wife, Esaw, said "hell no" when asked if she would accept Pantaleo's apology.

“The time for remorse would have been when my husband was yelling to breathe. That would have been the time for him to show some type of remorse or some type of care for another human being’s life when he was screaming 11 times that he can’t breathe," she said.
