Eric Garner, 43, was unarmed when he died last July shortly after an officer named Daniel Pantaleo put him in a chokehold. The entire confrontation was captured on video.
On Wednesday the Harlem headquarters of the National Action Network held a press conference where Garner’s widow, Esaw Garner, and his mother, Gwen Carr, expressed their disappointment with the grand jury’s decision and their frustration that Pantaleo would not be held accountable by a court.
