Ugh.

A Staten Island grand jury on Wednesday has decided against filing criminal charges against a NYPD officer named Daniel Pantaleo for the death of Eric Garner.

Eric, the father of six children, was killed after being placed in a chokehold by the police officer on July 17th. He was allegedly resisting arrest.

A cell phone video, which you can view HERE, was taken of the event and sparked outrage across the country… because, you see, NYPD officers are BANNED from using chokeholds.

Well, over the weekend, Rosean Miller, a seven-month-pregnant woman, was grilling in front of her apartment. An officer informed her that she couldn’t do that, and this is where the details get fuzzy. He reportedly said he needed to go into her home, and she didn’t let him, which is when the officer did the unthinkable.
