Eric Garner Evidence Won’t Be Released

Staten Island District Attorney Daniel Donovan did not ask a judge to release testimony or exhibits from the grand jury that looked into indicting the NYPD officer who choked to death Eric Garner. (All grand jury evidence pertaining to Darren Wilson and Michael Brown was released.) Instead, a limited amount of information was released by a Staten Island judge: 50 witnesses and 60 exhibits, including video and autopsies, were admitted as evidence. The grand jury was also instructed on the use of physical force by an officer making an arrest. New York’s public advocate said she’ll fight to make all the proceedings public.
