Fmr. federal prosecutor 'shocked' there is no indictment in choking death case

(CNN) – A New York grand jury decided Wednesday not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Former federal prosecutors and CNN legal analysts Jeffrey Toobin and Sunny Hostin discuss in the video above.
