Police Chokehold Death

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, surrounded by community leaders, speaks to reporters about the grand jury’s decision in the Eric Garner case in the borough of Staten Island in New York, Wednesday, Dec. 3, 2014. A grand jury cleared the white New York City police officer Wednesday in the videotaped chokehold death of Garner, an unarmed black man, who had been stopped on suspicion of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes, a lawyer for the victim’s family said. A video shot by an onlooker and widely viewed on the Internet showed the 43-year-old Garner telling a group of police officers to leave him alone as they tried to arrest him. The city medical examiner ruled Garner’s death a homicide and found that a chokehold contributed to it. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
