New Yorkers sat down in Times Square, filling its streets and sidewalks, and in the ambient light of its high-rising video walls and colorful advertisements, they immortalized some of Eric Garner's last words.
"I can't breathe! I can't breathe!" they chanted in unison.
It was Garner's cry, as he lay near death in the chokehold of police Officer Daniel Pantaleo on July 17, on a Staten Island sidewalk, where police had taken him down.
A grand jury decided not to prosecute Pantaleo on criminal charges in Garner's death. The announcement triggered protests.
