Colin Kaepernick just wrote his LAST check as part of his "$1 Million Pledge" campaign -- and teamed up with Usher to end it with a bang.

Remember, Kaep first started the program back in 2016 ... vowing to donate $1 MIL of his own money to more than 40 charitable causes -- including Communities United for Police Reform and The Black Youth Project.

Over the past 2 weeks, Colin enlisted some HUGE stars to match his final 10 donations -- including Steph Curry, Snoop Dogg, Serena Williams, Chris Brown, T.I. and Meek Mill (from prison).

A civilian police misconduct board is prepared to move forward with charges against the cop who killed Eric Garner — but the NYPD is blocking the move, his mother charged.

Gwen Carr said officials at the Civilian Complaint Review Board told her in a meeting that the department has used an administrative maneuver to block the case from proceeding against Daniel Pantaleo, by refusing to issue a case number.

“We’re tired of waiting. We’ve been waiting for almost four years,” Carr said at a press conference outside City Hall Thursday.
