NO JUSTICE: Staten Island grand jury refuses to indict in Eric Garner case

“‘How can anyone in the community have faith in the system now?’ asked Vincent Warren, Center for Constitutional Rights executive director.

No charges will be brought against white officer Daniel Pantaleo, who brought Eric Garner, 43, a Black father of two children, down in a chokehold that led to his death on Staten Island last July. Like the decision from Ferguson Wednesday afternoon, the grand jury decided not to indict the officer, and already the outrage is palpable.”
