Protesters took to the streets around the United States for the second time in less than two weeks after a New York City grand jury decided not to indict the police officer involved in the choke-hold death of Eric Garner.

The Missouri grand jury decision sparked violent demonstrations in Ferguson, and days of protests in dozens of cities around the country.

The attorney general pointed out these incidents “have tested the sense of trust that must exist between law enforcement and the communities they are charged to serve and protect.” He added, “This is not a New York issue or a Ferguson issue alone.
