HERE WE GO! Cop in New York Chokehold Case Won’t Be Charged

Source: Melanie Eversley / USA Today

A New York City grand jury has declined to indict a white police officer in the case of Eric Garner, a 43-year-old unarmed black man who died July 17 in a police chokehold, a lawyer involved in in the case said Wednesday.

Jonathon Moore, an attorney for the victim’s family, said he was told there would be no indictment of Officer Daniel Pantaleo. The medical examiner had ruled the death a homicide.

The decision comes nine days after a grand jury declined to indict a Ferguson, Mo., police officer in the shooting death of an 18-year-old black man, setting off waves of protests across the country.

A video of the Staten Island incident drew national attention. Garner, who had asthma, is heard shouting “I can’t breathe” at least eight times as police take him to the ground in what appears to be a chokehold, an action the New York Police Department prohibits. Garner was pronounced dead at a hospital later that night.
