The Reverend Al Sharpton (L in gray) marches with protesters at a rally against police brutality in memory of Eric Garner on August 23, 2014 in Staten Island, New YorkSeveral thousand people demonstrated on New York's Staten Island Saturday to protest the death of a black man who had been placed in a chokehold by police. Eric Garner, 43, a father of six who was suspected of illegally selling cigarettes, was wrestled to the ground by several white police officers after resisting arrest on July 17. Classified as a homicide by the New York medical examiner's office, his death set off intense reactions and several protests in New York reminiscent of those in Ferguson, Missouri, over the August 9 police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown. "I can't breathe" and "no justice, no peace," chanted the demonstrators, who converged on Staten Island, one of five New York City boroughs, by bus and ferry.
