Andrew McCarthy sums up my feelings well:
The New York City grand jury decision not to indict a police officer in the death of Eric Garner is much harder to justify than the St. Louis grand jury decision not to indict a police officer in the death of Michael Brown. It is very unfortunate that these cases come so closely together, which plays into the hands of the race-obsessed demagogues. And we should reserve final judgment about what happened in Staten Island until we learn about all the evidence the grand jury considered — although the extensive video in the Garner case makes it very hard to reserve judgment.
He also has a full column on it, which is worth your time.
I watched the video — an experience I’d rather not go through again. And all I can say after having seen it is, they ought to amend the old expression to say, “You can indict a ham sandwich, unless the ham sandwich took a cavalier attitude towards using a banned choke hold to subdue someone, resulting in their death for selling individual cigarets.”
