Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, ceased struggling and appeared to become unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene.

But a video captured Garner’s desperate pleas for help as one cop shoved his head into the sidewalk and three others pinned him down — while a fifth cop put him in handcuffs.

“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” he shouted in vain. By the video’s end, Garner was lying motionless on the sidewalk as cops chased eyewitnesses away.
