NYS Senate Passes Anti-Chokehold Legislation

The Eric Garner Anti-Chokehold Act passed in the New York State Senate this week. The bill makes aggravated strangulation a Class-C felony. Rockland and Westchester state senator David Carlucci co-sponsored the bill, and says it and other similar measures are on the docket in response to the protests being held across the country in the wake of the George Floyd incident in Minneapolis…

Another bill the senate is considering would require on- or off-duty state and local law enforcement officers to report, within six hours, when they discharge their weapon in which a person could have been struck.
