A Staten Island grand jury has chosen not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantoleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. Black and unarmed, the 43-year-old was killed in July as officers attempted to arrest him for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes.

The jarring incident was caught on camera, with Garner pleading, “I can’t breathe.” His last words became a rallying cry in New York and across the nation for thousands speaking out against police brutality. Although the medical examiner confirmed that the chokehold did cause Garner’s death, it wasn’t enough for an indictment ruling.

This decision comes on the heels of a Mo. grand jury decision’s not to indict Officer Darren Wilson for the death of unarmed Black teen, Michael Brown, just last week.
