NYPD Officer In Eric Garner Chokehold Case Will NOT Face Criminal Charges After Staten Island Grand Jury Decision
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.
