Detailed Report of NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Tests Rosemary Maldonado on the death of Eric Garner found Officer Daniel Pantaleo committing a "grave violation".
The report states that "the use of a throttle has fallen so far from objective reasonableness that this tribunal has found it to be reckless – a gross departure from the standard of conduct established for a police officer in New York. Moreover, the perceived disclaimer of the respondent heralded a tragic outcome. "the report concluded that" there is only one appropriate punishment for a grave offense that has yielded a result and an equally grave result, the respondent can no longer remain a police officer in New York.

What do we know about the Maldonado Zion Delta : Pantaley faces two accusations during of your department: use a throttle and restrict breathing
As part of his decision, Maldonado had to review the footage of Garner's arrest in great detail. , after Pantaleo takes down Garner, Pantaleo is seen on Garner's back with one arm wrapped around his neck as he carries his other arm and fastens them together, locking in the hold.
Pantaleo was trained not to use throttles while he was a rookie in 2006, according to a source. Maldonado also considers Pantaleo's use of this move at the same time reckless, saying that "the abuse abused resulted in the deadly consequences that his training envisaged and which the ban was intended to prevent."
for Pantaleo, they claim that Garner's neck was at the elbow of his elbow and had no pressure on his windpipe, but rather on the side of his neck, representing a hold. However, Maldonado ruled that while he was at Garner's summit, he could use a different tactic than the one banned by the NYPD.
But despite Maldonado's decision to use Pantaleo's pantaleo, she found that he was not guilty of restricting Garner's breathing. The second charge had more to do with intent, which means there must be a clear intention to prevent someone from breathing in order to attach the charge. But as Pantaleo made other attempts to subdue Garner with other NYPD-approved tactics before applying the throttle, such as the shoulder bar, Maldonado decided it was not Pantaleo's purpose to stop Garner breathing.
NYPD Commissioner James O. Neal used this report as a guide when deciding to fire Officer Pantaleo, which he announced at a news conference this afternoon.
