NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Rev.

Garner died in July after being placed in a chokehold by an NYPD officer. An unarmed Gurley was fatally shot by a rookie police officer in Brooklyn last week.
Sharpton said he hopes “America realizes the pain of these families,” and led them through what he called a bonding prayer.
“They share each others’s pain and understand what we don’t understand,” Sharpton said.
