“I can’t breathe.” Those were the last words of Eric Garner after he was put in a chokehold and thrown to the ground by New York City police officers in 2014. After Garner’s death, those same words became a rallying cry for protesters around the country. Now, the words are echoed in a new book, “I Can’t Breathe: A Killing On Bay Street,” which examines the events that led up to Garner’s death, and the fallout after.
