The grand jury’s decision not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo was met with shock and disbelief, coming just over a week after another white police officer, Darren Wilson, escaped indictment in the August shooting death of unarmed teen Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Lawmakers nationally and in New York condemned the decision in the Garner case, while scores of protesters marched through Manhattan threatening to disrupt the annual Christmas tree lighting at Rockefeller Center.
On Capitol Hill, New York lawmakers including Reps. Hakeem Jeffries, Charlie Rangel, Nydia Velazquez, Gregory Meeks and Yvette Clarke pressed for a federal civil rights investigation into the case.
The presence of a camera doesn’t necessarily alter the outcome, however, as the Garner decision showed. Pantaleo’s fatal encounter Garner was fully videotaped, but it was not enough to persuade the grand jury to hand down charges against the officer.
