Activists protest NYPD commissioner Bratton on his last day in office

New York City police commissioner Bill Brattons legacy has been marred by controversial policing practices and officer misconduct. Two years ago New York City Police Department (NYPD) officer Daniel Pantaleo was placed on administrative leave after he choked Eric Garner to death during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. In the two years since Garners death, Officer Pantaleos pay has increased by roughly $40,000 with overtime and bonuses. RT Americas Trinity Chavez has the report from New York City, where activists protested on NYPD commissioner Brattons last day in office.
