Protesters at Grand Central Station in New York City. (Twitter)
In the aftermath of a Staten Island grand jury’s decision not to indict a New York Police Department officer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, an unarmed Black man, protesters took to Twitter to express outrage.
The hashtag #ICantBreathe was trending on Twitter and other social media sites as demonstrators took to the streets around the nation to protest the decision. The hashtag grew out of Garner’s plea for help as he was placed by in a chokehold by an officer on a sidewalk in Staten Island, N.Y., this summer. Garner could be heard on a viral video stating that he could not breathe as the officer subdued him using the chokehold, which had long been banned by the department.
