Garner's repeated dying cries of "I can't breathe", widely viewed on social media, became a rallying cry for the Black Lives Matter movement, which protests what its leaders call the disparate use of excessive force against black people across the United States.

Garner died on July 17, 2014, after police attempted to arrest the 43-year-old father of six, who was allegedly selling loose cigarettes illegally on Staten Island, a crime for which he previously he had been arrested.
Video of the arrest showed Garner repeatedly saying "I can't breathe" as officers pressed him down into the pavement in the city's Staten Island borough. Federal authorities, however, kept a civil rights investigation open for five years before announcing last month they wouldn't bring charges.
The city medical examiner's office ruled Garner's death a homicide in the days after his death, and the medical examiner testified that Pantaleo's alleged chokehold caused an asthma attack and was "part of the lethal cascade of events".
