Richard P. Donogue, the United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York refuses to charge NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo for the murder of Eric Gardner. Gardner became famous in death five years ago when his murder was caught on tape by a member of New York CopWatch (Ramsey Orta). Some of Gardner's last words were "I can't breathe." The video footage sparked the anti-police brutality "I can't breathe" movement.

It is always shocking to see cops caught on film using excessive force and still not being held accountable. Personally, it is a blow to my hopes that my police brutality lawsuit will be successful. I have to rely on medical experts because I have no tape. While incarcerated I noticed that correctional officers became to view "I can't breathe as a joke." Whenever they make it hard for an inmate to breathe and he says, "I can't breathe" they just say "yea right" or "if you could not breathe you could not talk."
