“He’s full of malarkey,” Garner Snipes told CNN Friday.
“They just keep passing the buck and it’s really annoying,” Garner Snipes added.
Garner, an unarmed black man, was killed by New York police officer Daniel Pantaleo in 2014 when the officer placed him in a headlock. Video of the incident shows Garner saying he can’t breathe as he falls to the ground.
He was being arrested for selling untaxed cigarettes.
Garner Snipes said that de Blasio should have acted after her husband was killed by firing Pantaleo, who is still currently on the police force.
“They need to fire him,” Garner Snipes said.
“He’s full of malarkey…They just keep passing the buck and it’s really annoying.”
