Hundreds Arrested During Eric Garner Protests in NYC

223 Arrested on Second Day of Garner Protests: NYPD

More than 200 demonstrators were arrested as protests against the Staten Island grand jury’s decision not to indict an NYPD officer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner stretched into a second night, police said.

Thousands of people flooded streets across the city Thursday, crossing the Brooklyn Bridge carrying makeshift coffins, blocking traffic at other major bridges and tunnels, lying down in roadways in silent "die-ins" and weaving through busy thoroughfares chanting "I can't breathe," and "No justice, no peace." More protests are expected Friday and a national march is planned for next week.
