Late-night comedy guru Jon Stewart was at a rare loss for words on The Daily Show last night over yesterday's grand jury decision not to indict NYPD Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the chokehold death of Eric Garner.

Stewart got serious:

"I honestly don't know what to say. If comedy is tragedy plus time, I need more f**king time, but I would really settle for less f**king tragedy, to be honest with you."
