In March 2017, Eric Garner’s funeral was held in Staten Island and mourners and protesters converged on the borough’s streets in what turned into a march to Garner’s memorial. At a march-in from the steps of the Empire State Building, thousands of people stood to remember the deceased black man, some of whom carried signs reading „I can’t breathe.“
The NYPD tweeted a photo taken earlier that day of the march, with several men at the center shouting at police, in response to Garner’s death.

Davis made clear that he and the NYPD needed to „re-invent the model of trust that has governed the relationship between police and minority communities for decades.“
