Quote:
The Black Lives Matter activist Erica Garner has died, after a week in hospital following a heart attack. She was 27. Garner was the daughter of Eric Garner, a man who died in a police chokehold in New York in 2014


Quote:
Eric Garner, who was 43, died in Staten Island in July 2014 after a white police officer subdued him with an illegal chokehold, during an arrest over the alleged sale of untaxed loose cigarettes. He also suffered from asthma. His last words, “I can’t breathe”, became a slogan for activists protesting police brutality against African Americans.

What makes you think her death will bring out conspiracists?

Quote:
Her mother, Esaw Snipes, told the New York Times earlier this week her daughter learned during her recent pregnancy that she had heart problems. Snipes said Garner had a heart attack after an asthma episode and was placed in a medically induced coma.

She's way too young to have a heart attack.

Where does it say She's way too young to have a heart attack? People have heart attacks in their teens and younger.

In the interest of being as polite as I can, I'll just say this. That statement demonstrates a severe lack of knowledge.

Just tragic. Her dad was taken unfairly, and now her. I have to imagine the stress/agony of losing her father and fighting for her cause did not help her health.
