After this fateful incident, Mr. Orta stated that he actually regretted recording Garner’s last moments because it led to him being chased by police officers in his community and later when he was behind bars.
While he was in prison, Orta claimed that prison staff abused him, called him a racist, beat him and denied him certain freedoms for no good reason, in retaliation for the Garner incident. He even filed a lawsuit against the New York Department of Corrections in 2015, claiming that his food had been poisoned by Ryker Island employees. According to Verge, Orta was ill several times during his stay on Rikers Island and suspected that his food had been poisoned. When his diet was tested, the meatloaf he ate was found to react positively to fermented dipacum, an active ingredient in rodents.
Since Ramsey went to prison – after a case in which I think he was framed – he has been prosecuted and punished in solitary confinement, said activist Josmar Trujillo, an expert on police violence, in an interview with Amsterdam News. One day, when me and others tried to visit him, we were kept away from the door and were not even allowed to come along after the time of the prison visit, we were repeatedly confirmed.
Horta also sued Daniel Donovan, a congressman from Staten Island, New York, for telling the New York Daily News and the New York Post that he had been convicted of rape, which he denied, reports SI Live.

The 9th. On June 6, the New York Assembly passed Eric Garner’s anti-sphyxia law, which makes strangulation, banned in 1993, a class C crime. If a New York police officer uses this strangler, he can be sentenced to 15 years in prison. The new law also created a new offence of serious suffocation, defined as the act of a police officer or a peacekeeper who pressurises a person’s throat or airways with the use of a suffocating substance or a similar security device, preventing the inhalation or aspiration of air, resulting in serious injury or death.
Despite the fact that strangulation was banned more than two decades ago, 996 complaints to the New York Civil Complaints Office state that strangulation was used in arrests between 2014 and 2020.
