Another bleak day in America.
Another Grand Jury decided to not indict New York City police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner.
Pantaleo put 47-year-old Garner into a chokehold during an arrest for selling untaxed cigarettes on July 17. In a viral video of the arrest, Garner can be seen screaming “I can’t breathe!” multiple times until his body goes limp. A medical examiner later ruled his death a homicide.No trial, no punishment... Nothing.
Chokeholds are banned by NYPD guidelines, and Garner’s death prompted large protests across the city.
The grand jury’s decision Wednedsay comes just over a week after a grand jury in Ferguson, Missouri, declined to indict officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
This was videotaped and it didn't mean anything. What will a camera on a cop do, if a video doesn't convince a Grand Jury?
This is getting way out of hand.
