    Oh boy...

    A grand jury in Staten Island has decided not indict New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in relation to the death of Eric Garner, a man that Pantaleo was seen on video putting in an apparent choke hold in July, according to city officials and lawyers for Garner's family.

    The grand jury's decision means that there will not be criminal charges in the case but NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton said earlier today that there may be up to three other investigations into the incident that could lead to civil or federal charges.

    The grand jury was made up of 23 residents of Staten Island and led by a foreperson. A decision required a majority of the jury -- meaning at least 12 people.

    Pantaleo, 29, and his police partner, Justin D'Amico, testified in front of the jury. D'Amico appeared only after being granted immunity from prosecution.

    I'm really shocked on this one. There is a video that shows the choke hold.

    Maybe it wasn't the choke hold that killed him. Maybe it was the fact that he was obese, had asthma, and diabetes.

    Me too. I thought that choke holds were illegal. Don't quote me on that though. I remember a bunch of emergency workers showing up and not doing anything to revive the dude. This is not going to end well.

    Yeah I supported George Zimmerman & Darren Wilson, both of those cases had a severe lack of evidence and it was far more likely those two acted in self defense.

    But this case is fucked up, the guy wasn't putting up any threat. This was manslaughter.

    I just saw the news and they said that the cops said that the murderer cop didn't use a choke hold on the guy, he used a "seatbelt hold" on him. So that's the way they lied their way out of that one.

    if these guys can't even be tried, not convicted mind you, but just indicted and put to a trial, fucking no cop ever will. Cops are immune, they don't give shit who they kill.
