The police officer who killed Eric Garner with a chokehold (this chokehold is apparently prohibited by the NYPD), caught on video, was not indicted for Garner's death.

Whether or not this police officer should have been indicted, why was force necessary in the first place? The man was unarmed, upset, and not engaged in any activity dangerous to those around him, and it seems like this is a prime example of retreat being the wisest option.
