2. There's virtually no chance of a state indictment,

 

and although the DOJ is still "investigating," the probability of a criminal civil rights charge are very small given the very high standards and burdens that must be met by the government.

Even with an indictment, any state trial would be in Staten Island (a federal trial would be in Brooklyn). If they couldn't secure an indictment in the county, an actual conviction would appear extremely remote, at best.

There's a reason why deBlasio, Cuomo and Holder have not spoken about charges after the grand jury failed to indict, other that general an vague pronouncements about "investigations" and "reforms."
