Eric Garner's sister: He was treated like trash

As protesters began another night flooding the streets of New York and elsewhere demanding change after the grand jury's decision not to indict in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, his family continues to speak out about the incident that claimed Garner's life.

In an interview with CNN's Erin Burnett, one of Garner's daughters - Emerald Snipes Garner and Eric's sister, Ellisha Flagg Garner say the police treated him like trash.

"My brother was neglected. They showed no compassion, no remorse. They had no respect for human life," Ellisha Flagg Garner says.
