13-Year-Old-Pleads With Police To Spare His Life During Protests
Another day of protest and marches have taken place across New York City and the nation in the wake of the Eric Garner and Mike Brown tragedies.
A Staten Island grand jury deliberated for just one day and concluded 29 year old officer Daniel Pantaleo was innocent of any wrongdoing in the chokehold death of the 43 year old father of four. The news came just days after a Ferguson grand jury did not indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Mike Brown.
Since then, thousands of protesters have marched in support of both lives taken by police brutality across New York City and the nation. However, one young man seen marching in Times Square, begged police officers to spare his life, and in essence, summed up the meaning behind the protests.
Watch the inspiring, yet heartbreaking moment.
