Report: NYPD linked to rewrites of Eric Garner Wikipedia entries

A new report claims that individuals working within the NYPD headquarters edited details on the Wikipedia page for the Eric Garner case.



Changes made by anonymous users to the page were allegedly linked to IP addresses on the NYPD's network.



One of the Wikipedia edits included replacing the word "chokehold" with "headlock" and "respiratory distress."



Investigators say they are trying to determine who was behind the changes.
