A Black Lives Matter protest in Brooklyn and Lower Manhattan ended with protesters clashing with police, resulting in more than two dozen arrests and eleven officers injured. The protesters started at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and crossed the Brooklyn Bridge to City Hall Park, where they were met by a large number of officers. Video from Citizen App showed the chaotic scene outside City Hall. Demonstrators blocked traffic, threw bottles and vandalized property, and police started making arrests. 28 people were arrested, mostly charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration, resisting arrest and blocking the roadway. 11 police officers injured, none serious. An NYPD captain was struck in the helmet with a bottle. Police are still looking for that suspect. The event was called the Black Liberation March organized to commemorate Martin Luther King Day.

It was a public demonstration of low iq and lack of impulse control
That is by far the most peaceful thing I have ever seen
can you imagine if these were people from the right...... it would major headline news all over the world of a ‘white supremacists right wing terrorist attack.’
For now, white people being allowed to have private property
Soon, white people being allowed to breath unbloodied
Yesterday was MLK Day, right?
You’d think the BLM groups would be whooping it up, picnics,
clambakes, and hootenannies.
Impulse control isn’t a strong suit.
“The event was called the Black Liberation March organized to commemorate Martin Luther King Day”
Low information voters. Probably think that’s what you’re supposed to do.
this was obviously an insurrection /s
After 50 years of throwing huge sums of money at the black community and achieving few if any positive results, would the left please let me know if that is a failure of leftism or blackness?
I never saw that. That riot was sure hidden from the public.
so do they plan on indicting MLK with inciting in abstentia for his speeches that obviously fired these folks up?
