Another “No Indictment” For Police Who Choked Eric Garner to Death


The (AP) reports – A lawyer says a grand jury in New York City has declined to indict a white police officer on criminal charges in the chokehold death of an unarmed black man in July.

Jonathon Moore, an attorney for the victim’s family, said Wednesday he was told there would be no indictment of Officer Daniel Pantaleo (Pahn-TUH’-lay-oh) in the death of 43-year-old Eric Garner. Garner was stopped in Staten Island on suspicion of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes.

Amateur video shot by an onlooker showed Garner refusing to be handcuffed. Pantaleo responded by putting Garner in an apparent chokehold, which is banned under NYPD policy. Garner was heard yelling, “I can’t breathe!”

Moore says he is “astonished by the decision.”

I'm just tired of the lies and nonsense coming from the GOP, so this is my little contribution to combat the nonsense!

    See: even WITH witnesses, video, etc the cops in this country can LITERALLY get away with murder. Grand juries are useless……..the outcome is always known before hand. Don’t even consider this a “race crime” maybe…and it’s STILL WRONG..the coroner even labeled it a homicide, a death caused by the actions of someone else.

    When does the next revolution start, folks?
