This couple have to be the bravest couple I know. A tasteless couple mocked Eric Garner’s death on live TV late Wednesday, laughing it up while re-enacting the Staten Island man’s final moments. As WPIX reporter Allison Kaden reported live near Rockefeller Center on Garner-related protests, the distasteful duo video-bombed her shot — with the man wrapping his forearm around the woman. The woman even threw her hands in the air, just like Garner did moments before he was swarmed by cops busting him for allegedly selling loose, tax-free cigarettes.
The giggling couple then stepped away, and the reporter kept on talking without realizing what had played out behind her. Garner died during that July 17 confrontation and a Staten Island grand jury announced Wednesday it could not find enough evidence to indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo, who applied a chokehold on the suspect.
