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.
When the world found out that a cop named Darren Wilson shot and killed Michael Brown, many people initially thought it was a black police officer from St. Louis, Missouri.
"My phone went off the hook," Sgt. Darren R. Wilson tells Chris Cuomo. The social media accounts for his organization, the Ethical Society of Police, also saw a ton of action from people looking for answers.
Given his unique perspective, Sgt. Wilson weighed in on the actions of the other Darren Wilson, as well as New York police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.
"You hear the term 'zero to sixty.' It appears in both cases, that's what happened."
More than a week after a raid on an al Qaeda stronghold in Yemen to free hostages, an American captive, who was not rescued, appears in a video, begging into the camera for his life.
In the recording recently posted by al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, also known as AQAP, the terror group threatens to kill Luke Somers, if Washington does not meet its demands.
AQAP member Nasser bin Ali al-Ansi, who reads a statement, does not say what the demands are but claims that the U.S. government knows them.
Somers also gives a short statement asking for help and identifying himself.
"My name is Luke Somers. I'm 33 years old. I was born in England, but I carry American citizenship and have lived in America for most of my life," he says.
