WASHINGTON, DC – Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chair Marcia L. Fudge  released the following statement on the decision of the Staten Island Grand Jury not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner:

“I am deeply disappointed by the Staten Island Grand Jury’s decision not to indict Officer Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner. Even in the face of video footage, it appears justice will not be served for Mr. Garner or his family.

“In the span of two weeks, this nation seems to have heard one message loud and clear: there will be no accountability for taking Black lives. As an American, it is growing increasingly difficult to believe that there is justice for all.

“I ask for calm yet resolute voices to be heard in our communities. It is imperative that people of good will, those who believe in a just and fair criminal justice system, hear our voices. Black lives do matter and our lives do hold value.

“This is yet another sad day for our county and our democracy.”
