The family of an Inwood man who was shot and killed by a plainclothes narcotics cop say they’re still hungry for justice. On Thursday, just days after a grand jury voted not to indict the cop who pulled the trigger, they called for a federal probe of the incident.

John Collado, 43, was killed last September after police say the former pro wrestler and father of five put plainclothes Det. James Connelly in a choke hold as the officer confronted Collado’s neighbor.

“We want justice,” said Collado’s widow, Amarilis, adding that she “feels betrayed by the authorities.”

Family members have contended that Collado was trying to break up what he thought was a fight between a neighborhood pal and another man in front of his building on Post Ave.

They have insisted Collado didn’t know it was a cop that was tussling with his friend, Rangel Batista.
