President Obama, who discussed the grand jury’s decision Wednesday with Attorney General Eric Holder said it underscores the need to strengthen the trust and accountability between communities and law enforcement, reported the Mail Online
Adding that the president even went so far as to concede that in some cases, despite much of society’s wish to believe otherwise, police racial bias does exist.
Obama says police have to deal with crime every day, but says they can do their jobs better if people have confidence in the law enforcement system.
‘In some cases those might be misperceptions,’ the president said while speaking to the White House Tribal Nations Conference. ‘But in some cases that’s a reality.’
Eric Garner, a 43-year-old father of six, died on July 17 after police officers tackled him and put him in a chokehold. The city’s medical examiner ruled the death a homicide and a New York City grand jury decided not to indict the officer.
