In July Eric Garner was placed in what is being called a choke hold by Officer Daniel Pantaleo. The incident was caught on tape with Garner repeatedly saying that he could not breath. The officer said he felt that Garner was resisting arrest and claimed the move he used was not a choke hold but a simple take-down maneuver taught at the police academy.
The announcement that no charges would be brought against the officer was made less than a week following the Michael Brown no-indictment announcement, and in a nation already enthralled in protests and race wars, the timing of this case couldn't be worse.
People in New York took to the streets in protest focusing on the planned tree lighting ceremony at Rockefeller Center. There were chants of "Never Again" and "I can't breathe" heard in the crowd and some people confronted police making a choke hold sign.
Many are now wondering... what's next?
