The family of a Staten Island man killed by a police chokehold met with Justice Department officials Wednesday as a federal investigation of the case hangs in the balance.
Federal authorities characterized the closed-door sit-down as routine and indicated there would be no major announcements, which was echoed during a news conference with Rev. Al Sharpton and the Garner family following the meeting.
“Once again, we’re going to be playing the waiting game. We came here today for answers but evidently we are still without knowing whether we are going to get justice or not,” Garner’s mother Gwen Carr said.
