Eric Garner case

Protesters say the video of Eric Garner's death speaks for itself. But a Staten Island grand jury decided Wednesday not to bring charges against a New York City police officer who put in a chokehold a man he and other officers were trying to arrest for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes on the street. The decision brought out thousands of protesters on to New York City's streets.
