Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo Not Indicted in Eric Garner Choke Hold Death

http://images.rnews.com/media/2014/8/19/images/ENLARGE_01GARNER2.pngA 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 a civil case or federal charges.
Garner's family has already indicated that they plan to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the NYPD for $75 million.
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.  - ABC News

“Oh my God, are you serious?” Esaw Garner asked when a Daily News reporter broke the news to her.
“I’m very disappointed,” she said, her voice rising with shock and anger. “You can see in the video that (the cop) was dead wrong!”
Garner was referring to the shocking cellphone video first published on NYDailyNews.com that showed Officer Daniel Pantaleo placing a gasping Garner in a chokehold — a move banned by the NYPD — and wrestling him to the ground.
“I can’t breathe,” the doomed dad could be heard saying at least 10 times.
