WASHINGTON–Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (NY-12) today released the following statement on the grand jury decision not to indict an NYPD office for the death of Eric Garner.

“Eric Garner’s death was a tragedy and today is a difficult day for many New Yorkers. I believe the Justice Department should investigate this matter further. A complete accounting of the circumstances surrounding Eric Garner’s death and how a similar tragedy can be prevented in the future must also be undertaken. I urge those who are protesting this decision to do so peacefully to preserve the safety of all New Yorkers.”
