"The man who filmed it, Ramsey Orta, was arrested in August a month after the tragedy for allegedly concealing a handgun in a teenage accomplice's waistband outside a New York hotel. He testified that police brought the charges in retaliation to his dissemination of the Eric Garner video, but the grand jury ignored him, indicting him on multiple firearm charges."

This is what it's come to. We have now reached the point of emotional detachment and desentitization that we can watch a cold blooded murder, on video ( snuff porn in every sense of the word ) and it doesn't even move a prosecutor or grand jury to act.

Ya! I saw him interviewed last night. He said that "NO ONE has saved more African American lives than the NYPD". Whaaaa!? LOL!

I can't understand why the cop didn't loosen up his choke hold or stop it all together when he heard Eric Garner yelling out he couldn't breath. I mean, anybody with any kind of human compassion wouldn't continue to choke someone who can't breath. There were enough police officers restraining him, so I doubt loosening the choke hold or letting him go altogether would have given Eric enough leverage to break away. It was clearly an over use of force by the NYPD.
