Judge agrees to hear arguments over release of Garner grand jury records

Garner grand jury arguments to be heardThe mother of Eric Garner, the 43-year-old Staten Island man who died after a New York police officer put him in an unlawful chokehold, on Monday called for the resumption of weekly protests after a judge said he would hear oral arguments over whether to unseal the grand jury transcript in connection with the case.

Speaking on the steps of Richmond County courthouse in Staten Island, Gwen Carr and a lawyer said rallies over the deaths of black men at the hands of police had been suspended out of respect for the families of two NYPD officers who were shot dead in Brooklyn on 20 December. With funeral services for the officers having been held, protests will resume on Tuesday, on the steps of the Staten Island courthouse, to demand a release of the grand jury transcript.

When he opened the door, he discovered a 7-year-old girl standing in the cold. She was bloodied, covered in scratches and barefoot except for a single sock.
