Eric Holder Promises Investigation into N.Y.P.D. Chokehold Death
With protests over the chokehold death of Eric Garner continuing for a second day both in New York and across social media, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has promised a full investigation into the grand jury's decision not to charge officer Daniel Pantaleo. Currently, Pantaleo has been stripped of his position at the N.Y.P.D. and could still face disciplinary action from an internal police investigation into his use of an illegal restraint. Both the videotaped confrontation with Garner and the outcome in Ferguson have reignited debate over U.S. law enforcement unfairly targeting African Americans and other minorities.
