A new documentary about the case of former New York City Police Department officer Daniel Pantaleo that premiered on Friday evening was a big hit on social media, earning more than 200,000 views on YouTube.
In the documentary, former NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaloney is shown pleading guilty to charges of second-degree murder, manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon, and is sentenced to death.
His lawyer argues that Pantalony did not act in self-defense, but the defense argues that his actions were necessary to protect himself and others.
On Friday, the filmmaker and the filmmakers released the documentary to YouTube, and the film received more than 100,000 dislikes on Facebook.
The clip is one of the most popular clips from the documentary and received more likes than any other in the video’s history.
In a news release, the filmmakers say that they plan to release the full version of the film to the public on Thursday, February 16.
They also say they will be posting additional footage in the coming weeks to “provide a more comprehensive look at this case, as well as providing additional context and information about the events leading up to and following the death of Daniel Pantalko.”
“This is a story that will continue to be told for years to come,” the filmmakers said in a statement.
“I am extremely grateful to the thousands of supporters and volunteers who have stepped up and shared their support for this film.”
