Thousands took to the streets of New York, Washington and other cities across the country on Wednesday night, protesting a grand jury’s decision to not indict a police officer who killed 43-year-old unarmed Eric Garner with a chokehold. Coming just over a week after the latest Ferguson, Mo. unrest, the decision touched a nerve with many who feel justice for victims of police brutality is not being served. RT’s Alexey Yaroshevsky and Manuel Rapalo have more details.
A summary of the US Senate Intelligence Committee's controversial torture report is expected to be released to the public next week, although sources claim the document completely omits the word “torture.” This is despite the fact that even President Barack Obama has admitted that the CIA used techniques that are can be correctly classified as torture and are illegal.
