  1. NYC Simmers After Cop Cleared

    In a case with echoes of Ferguson, a grand jury voted not to bring criminal charges against Daniel Pantaleo, the white police officer who restrained an unarmed black man with a fatal chokehold. The medical examiner later classified Eric Garner’s death as a homicide. The verdict sparked a ”die-in” at Grand Central Terminal and other angry protests, prompting dozens of arrests. It also won’t be the last word on the incident. Attorney general Eric Holder said the Justice Department is launching an investigation.
