Statement: Grand Jury Decision on Death of Eric Garner
The Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA), issued this statement following the decision by a grand jury to not indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner that took place this summer on Staten Island, NY. It begins, 'The fact that the grand jury failed to indict New York City Police Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of Eric Garner would be a miscarriage of justice at any time.'

Statement: Indictment Decision Reflection
The Rev. Peter Morales, president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, issued a statement reflecting on the indictment decision in Ferguson, MO. It begins, “Our fear that justice will not be served is now a reality. Regardless of the reasons why a grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, people are angry, frustrated, and outraged. We still have questions unanswered. We still seek justice.'
