Despite cell-phone videos chronicling Eric Garner’s death, and lawsuits previously filed against the officer who choked him to death, a grand jury decided not to indict anyone in his death. Police confronted the 43-year-old father of six because he was suspected of selling loose cigarettes and he paid with his life.

The hashtag IfTheyGunnedMeDown has taken off on the social network Twitter to protest the practice by media outlets of using negative, racist, or false-stereotype images of African Americans when portraying them in the news, especially as victims of crimes.
