Justice Department: Cleveland Police poorly trained, reckless

Thousands of demonstrators converged on the streets of major U.S. cities Thursday to protest police brutality, a day after a grand jury decided not to indict a NYPD officer in the fatal chokehold of Eric Garner.

Questions over the use of excessive force is now a priority at the White House. Attorney General Eric Holder said it has to stop as he announced findings from an investigation that uncovered a pattern of excessive force and reckless behavior by the Cleveland Police Department.

The same department is under fire after an officer killed a 12-year-old boy who had been holding a pellet gun. Now, there is growing evidence that the officer was unfit for duty.

What the Eric Garner grand jury saw

There are new questions about what New York police officer Daniel Pantaleo told the grand jury and whether it jibes with the video of Eric Garner's death.

Pantaleo said he never meant to harm the 43-year-old, but did evidence tell a different story?
