In the continuing fallout from the death of Staten Island resident Eric Garner while in the custody of New York police, the four emergency workers who responded to the scene are now suspended without pay by Richmond University Medical Center. Meanwhile, media reports indicate the police officer who used the chokehold on Garner has been sued twice in the last year for civil rights violations.

The website SILive.com revealed that Daniel Pantaleo, who has been stripped of his gun and badge and reassigned since Garner’s death, had a suit filed against him on June 21, 2013, by Darren Collins and Tommy Rice, both of Staten Island. The men allege that Pantaleo and several other officers unlawfully stopped their car, searched them, handcuffed them and “subjected [them] to a humiliating and unlawful strip search in public view … [the officers] forced [Collins and Rice] to pull their pants and underwear down, squat and cough,” according to court…

How to Choose Between In-house vs Agency Fashion PR

Pick up any PR textbook and you’ll notice the author tends to assume that working in PR means working as a company employee (they also seem to only focus on PR as it relates to healthcare, finance, oil companies, etc but that’s a rant for another time). The truth is that public relations practitioners, fashion or otherwise, generally have two options, working for a company (like DKNY’s Aliza Licht), or working for (or running, in the case of Kelly Cutrone and People’s Revolution), a fashion PR agency.
