Our thoughts are with the family of Eric Garner. As many have acknowledged and recent national actions demonstrate, grand juries simply do not indict police officers in the same way they indict civilians.  Mr Garner was taken from his family all too soon and for no good reason. We look to the DOJ to continue their investigation and call upon this administration to develop and implement policies that will prevent such a tragedy from ever happening again.
