Federal prosecutors say they won't bring charges against NYPD officers in Eric Garner's death

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn announced Tuesday they would not bring civil rights charges against NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo for the 2014 death of Eric Garner during an arrest, closing the criminal investigation of a case that triggered one of New York City’s most searing debates over race and policing. The decision, announced at a news conference an hour after a meeting between prosecutors and members of Garner’s family, was immediately denounced by family adviser the Rev. Al Sharpton as a “disgrace and judicial malpractice” by the Department of Justice. (Credit: Newsday / Matthew Chayes; Corey Sipkin)
