• NYPD Officers Assaulted during Mass Police Protests

    Two police officers were assaulted Tuesday night on the streets of Brooklyn as protests against police-related deaths erupt all across the country.

    Hundreds of protesters took to the streets in New York clogging traffic on the Brooklyn Bridge. They sat down in the middle of city streets, despite officers told them they would be arrested for obstructing traffic. When police tried to intervene things turned violent. Two officers suffering injuries, more than 20 protesters arrested, some of them even trying to scale the bridge.

    One off-duty sergeant was assaulted on the Brooklyn Bridge. He got out of his vehicle that was blocked by protesters and a verbal argument ensued with several demonstrators. Then one of them punched him in the face.

    A second officer was injured a short time later on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn, where he was struck in the head with a bottle, police said.

    The group organizing the New York protest calls itself “National Actions to Stop Murder by Police,” and it claims more than 90 unarmed people have been killed by police in the U.S. since the beginning of the year.

    Anti-cop protests are happening in other parts of the country, too. Hundreds are taking to the streets in Oakland and Chicago. Dozens of protesters actually laid down on the railroad tracks blocking trains from passing in Los Angeles.
