NEW YORK -- Protesters in New York city want all officers involved in Eric Garner's chokehold death fired.

This comes two days after a grand jury decided not indict the cop who subdued Garner on Staten Island back in July.

The move set off vocal but mainly peaceful protests from New York to Dallas to LA.

Here in North Texas, protesters marched through downtown Dallas staging a die-in at the American Airlines Center and held rallies across Fort Worth Friday.

More protests are planned in the DFW Saturday.
