A CBS reporter sent out a flurry of fiery tweets following the decision by a New York grand jury not to indict a white police officer for the chokehold death of a black man stopped on suspicion of selling untaxed cigarettes.

"Cop cleared in #Eric Garner case. You've got to be f**king kidding me," CBS "Inside Edition" reporter Laura Dimon tweeted Wednesday, in reaction to the group's decision not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the death of July 17 death of Eric Garner.

"Staten Island has never been worse. #EricGarner," she continued.

Dimon then compared the Ganer case to the shooting death of Michael Brown by a Ferguson police officer.

"So with #MichaelBrown, we didn't have video. No indictment. #EricGarner, we have horrific video. Still no indictment. What will it take? she asked.

"Didn't think I could be any more disappointed with my country's criminal justice system. I was wrong. #EricGarner," Dimon concluded.

A representative for CBS declined to provide a comment to TheBlaze, but Dimon later deleted the first two tweets she sent out.

Dimon further defended herself on Twitter, arguing she wasn't "covering" the Garner case, despite previously working on the story for the New York Daily News.
