GotNews.com has obtained the criminal records of the man who filmed Eric Garner’s encounter with the Staten Island police.
Ramsey Orta recorded the events that led to the death of street thug Garner and was indicted for a weapons charge.
Here’s his criminal records.
And here’s what he was indicted on.
Multiple journalists as well as celebrities are arguing that Orta should be praised as a hero and not indicted.
The New York Daily News ran a story that didn’t even mention Orta’s criminal background.
