JUSTICE IN AMERICA - The "I Can't Breathe" Controversy

"What Eric Garner case says about federal prosecution of police officers on duty" PBS NewsHour 7/16/2019


SUMMARY:  Eric Garner’s dying words, “I can’t breathe,” served as a rallying cry for protests against police brutality.  But the Justice Department announced Tuesday it would not file charges against the officer involved in the incident.  The decision closes the door on federal prosecution, as the statute of limitations expires Wednesday.  Yamiche Alcindor talks to Katie Benner of The New York Times.
