 A police officer stands over activists, demanding justice for the death of Eric Garner, as they stage a "die-in" during rush hour at Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan. A New York City grand jury on Wednesday declined to indict a white police officer who used a chokehold on an unarmed black man who died as police tried to arrest him for illegally selling cigarettes. The grand jury in the city's borough of Staten Island decided against criminal charges for New York police officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner. The deadly encounter on July 17 was captured on a video that quickly spread over the Internet and helped fuel debates about how U.S. police use force, particularly against minorities.
