Transcript for Protests Spread Over Lack of Indictment in Eric Garner Death
We are heading into a fourth night of protests over the decision not to indict the white officer whose apparent choke hold is said to have led to the death of an unarmed Blackburn. Tonight reports this is not the first time this officer has been accused of mistreating black suspects. ABC's Ron Claiborne is on the story for us once again. Reporter: Marching through a shopping mall in Houston, Texas, a so-called die-in in New York City's grand terminal. The protests over that grand jury decision are spreading. At a rally today in Harlem, Eric garner's mother said she has been comforted by the outpouring. It is just so awesome to see how the crowds are out there. Reporter: Although the officer involved in the deadly arrest of Eric garner will not face criminal charges, garner's family says they intend to file a civil lawsuit. The evidence is there we think to show excessive force, wrongful death by these officers on Eric garner. Reporter: Officer Daniel Pantaleo has been sued before in 2013 and earlier this year in two incidents of alleged wrongful arrest. One case was settled. The New York daily news reporting that he denied those charges, the other case still pending. 27 New York City police officers are field testing body cameras that proponents say can reduce use of force incidents. Turn off the car, let me see your hands! Reporter: In California, all 70 uniformed officers now wear body cams. In their first year of use, civilian complaints against police fell 88%. Use of force incidents were down nearly 60%. Skeptics like Eric garner's mother say bystanders had cameras rolling when her son was arrested. Dan, tonight, demonstrations popping up all over this city, all around this country. These protests, this movement really showing no signs of slowing down. No signs of letting up. Ron Claiborne, thank you. Tomorrow morning on this "This week", George stephanopoulos will interview New York City mayor bill De Blasio. This will be the mayor's first ever Sunday show appearance.
