Eric Garner: Staten Island protest at grand jury decision
The US justice department is to launch a civil rights investigation into the death of Eric Garner, a black man who was placed in an apparent chokehold by a white New York police officer.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio called the outcome "one that many in our city did not want" and appealed for a "peaceful, constructive" response.
The BBC spoke to people, including neighbours and friends of Eric Garner, taking part in a small protest held in Staten Island.
