N.Y. cop not indicted in chokehold death

New York (CNN) - A grand jury in New York on Wednesday decided not to indict white police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the July chokehold death of Eric Garner, an unarmed black man.

During the fatal encounter July 17, Garner raised both hands in the air and told the officers not to touch him. Seconds later, a video shows an officer behind Garner grab him in a chokehold and pull him to the sidewalk, rolling him onto his stomach.

"I can't breathe! I can't breathe!" Garner said repeatedly, his cries muffled into the pavement.

Garner, 43, was pronounced dead that day. Police had suspected Garner of selling cigarettes illegally.
