A Staten Island, New York, grand jury refused to indict a police officer in the chokehold-death of Eric Garner, a black man accused of selling “loose” cigarettes (untaxed cigarettes), putting the New York City area on alert for a Ferguson, Missouri-like incident. Interestingly, a video of the chokehold incident has surfaced, stirring the ire of O’Reilly. “Upon seeing the video and hearing Garner say he couldn’t breathe, I was extremely troubled,” O’Reilly says. “I would have loosened my grip. I desperately wish the officer would have done that.” O’Reilly elaborates in his “Talking Points” segment and speaks with radio talk show host and author Tavis Smiley about the event.
