NEW YORK—Across this city of more than 8 million, protestors gathered and chanted, “I can’t breathe,” the last words of Eric Garner, a 43-year-old African-American man and father of six who died in July after a New York Police Department officer put him in a chokehold. On Wednesday, a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict the officer, Daniel Pantaleo.
