Still from eyewitness video of NYPD officers administering chokehold on Eric Garner, who later died.
U.S. prosecutors on Tuesday said they will not charge an N.Y.P.D. officer in the death of Eric Garner, whose final words, "I can't breathe," inspired national protests against the unpunished police killings of Black people in America.

It's been five years. The only punishment Pantaleo received is being demoted to desk duty.
The person who captured video of the NYPD killing Eric Garner, Ramsey Orta, may face over 50 years in prison for filming a murder.
The man who did the killing walks free among us.
