The Eric Garner tragedy just got more complicated. Why? Because according to the New York Post, his daughter Erica celebrated Christmas by spreading personal information pertaining to one of the officers who was present during Garner’s apprehension:
Erica Garner tweeted that cop Justin D’Amico was “another officer that helped killed [sic] my dad,” and directed her 5,000-plus Twitter followers to a Web page that lists addresses for D’Amico and five possible relatives.
The information was viewed about 500 times before Garner’s stunning tweet was deleted following inquiries by The Post.
Keep in mind that it has not even been a full week since NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were brutally murdered by someone seeking retaliation for the killings of Eric Garner and Mike Brown.
Meanwhile, the family’s lawyer Jonathan Moore claims that Erica had no idea what was in the link she shared:
Nobody in the Garner family, including Erica, would consciously send information out about the personal address or phone number or any identifying information about the police officers, particularly after what happened to those two officers.
Let us quickly take a look at the tweet she issued, courtesy the Independent Sentinel:
Pastebin is a known application used to “dox” people. To dox someone means to publish private information about someone. Teeny-bopper cyber thugs “dox” each other all the time.
So Erica’s attorney Jonathan Martin wants us to believe that Erica retweeted the original tweet from DoxxTheWorld without realizing what it contained.
Hmm . . .
Do you believe him?
