Members of Congress voiced their frustration about the Staten Island grand jury's decision not to indict a police officer in the death of Eric Garner, taking to Twitter to express their reactions. Among those sending out tweets, Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen wrote: "Ferguson, Cleveland ,& Staten Island. The system is not working and must be made transparent & color blind. The hope is at the federal level." Sen. Harry Reid wrote, "Even if Mike Brown and Eric Garner allegedly committed minor crimes, they should not have had to pay with their lives." Illinois Rep. Jan Schakowsky tweeted: "No indictment in the death of #EricGarner, another injustice. Must act immediately, aggressively to ensure accountability & justice for all." And Michigan Rep. Justin Amash tweeted: "Clearly excessive force against #EricGarner. I pray that peace and justice will prevail." New York Rep. Gregory W. Meek, Maryland Rep. Elijah E. Cummings and Reid spoke out in statements, with the outgoing Senate majority leader expressing support for a federal investigation. The U.S. Justice Department is looking into the case.
