Here's the full statement:
While this decision is shocking, I want to echo the statement of a wide range of leaders inside and outside of government who are urging that protests remain peaceful in the aftermath of this decision. The death of Eric Garner is a tragedy that demands accountability. Nobody unarmed should die on a New York City street corner for suspected low-level offenses. I’m shocked by this grand jury decision, and will be calling on the Department of Justice to investigate.
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-NY) also tweeted a similar statement.
The Justice Department must launch a Federal investigation into Eric Garner’s death as soon as possible. -cs— Chuck Schumer (@SenSchumer) December 3, 2014
