The first response on Twitter by Erica Garner after the New York Post reported that she had retweeted the home address for a police officer involved in the fatal attempted arrest of her father, petty criminal Eric Garner, last July in Staten Island was to claim she was set up and that her words were changed—by the cops!

The Post reported late Thursday night that Garner deleted the tweet posted early Christmas Day that linked to the address of Justin D’Amico and several of his purported relatives after an inquiry by the Post. In the tweet Garner called D’Amico “another officer that helped killed my dad.”

Garner’s lawyer was quoted saying his client would not “consciously send information out about the personal address or phone number or any identifying information about the police officers…”

Garner posted a series of tweets starting late Friday morning attempting to explain herself and deflect responsibility. Following her claim she was “set up” she claimed her words were changed and accused police.
