A huge turnout is expected at Eric Garner's funeral Wednesday evening, as family and friends gather to grieve over the unjustified loss. Advocates are also expected to attend the ceremony, which will greatly add to the attendance.

Garner died last week after police attempted to arrest him for selling untaxed cigarettes on the street in Brooklyn. An officer put Garner in a chokehold, which is a move that has been banned from police protocol. The officer lost his badge and four EMS workers are suspended for clearly failing to give the man CPR when he needed it.

Rev. Al Sharpton is set to speak at the funeral.
