I would like to report “Officer Daniel Pantaleo’s family help fund” for fraudulent activity. The campaign makes the misleading statement that they are trying to help an officer "who was only doing his job!" This is false. An NYPD departmental trial determined that Pantaleo was guilty of reckless assault when he used a banned chokehold maneuver to kill Eric Garner. So, he was fired for NOT doing his job.
This campaign also violates your terms and conditions, which state that fundraising on this site cannot support "intolerance of any kind relating to race." While he was still an NYPD officer, Pantaleo was sued three times for misconduct--specifically for violating the constitutional rights of black men. And Pantaleo killed Eric Garner, an unarmed black man, by using excessive force. This campaign is openly fundraising for a racist former police officer. GoFundMe needs to suspend it immediately, and return all funds to the donors.
