The grand jury decision not to bring charges in the chokehold death of Eric Garner, announced Wednesday, was followed with public demonstrations in cities across the nation — and the Internet. #BlackLivesMatter and #HandsUpDontShoot have played a large role in addressing racial profiling and police brutality issues on social media, but there’s a new hashtag in town: #CrimingWhileWhite.

ABC News Critics attacked the NYPD after it posted a tweet in response to the Eric Garner decision, writing, “The #NYPD is committed to rebuilding public trust. #Wehearyou.” At about 4:15 p.m., city officials were notified by New York City’s digital director to “stop all outbound social content until further notice.” New York Daily News “My prayers are with the family of #EricGarner during this most difficult time. #TheSystemIsBroken,” tweeted Michael Brown’s attorney, Benjamin Crump. “Guess I should not be stunned. But I am stunned & angry,” tweeted Brad Lander, the city council’s deputy leader for policy. “Video. Prohib’td chokehold. Coroner says homicide. This is not justice.”
