NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Eric Garner’s family is continuing to call for justice a day after a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict a police officer in connection with the 43-year-old’s death.
Speaking Thursday on “CBS This Morning,” Garner’s widow, Esaw Garner, said “somebody needs to pay” for her husband’s death.
“That was my life, my husband,” she said. “He was my life — we’ve been married 27 years. How do you wake up the next day without your life partner? He was somebody that I was supposed to share the rest of my life with. He’s no longer here and we need justice for this. Somebody needs to pay.”
