No Charges in Eric Garner's Chokehold Death: Hip-Hop Community Reacts
Just over a week after a Ferguson grand jury failed to indict police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of unarmed teen Michael Brown, a Staten Island grand jury has chosen not to bring charges in the death of Eric Garner, a New York man who died after being placed in a chokehold by New York officer Daniel Pantaleo.
The hip-hop community has been just as vocal about the Garner case, so Wednesday's (Dec. 3) decision was met with a rash of angry tweets. See reactions from Outkast's Big Boi, A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip and more artists below:
