Ferguson Rage Spreads to NY: Shut Down Brooklyn Bridge

Ferguson Rage Spreads to NY: Shut Down Brooklyn Bridge

Over 1,000 protestors swarmed the Brooklyn Bridge and blocked traffic Monday night as rage from Ferguson, Missouri, rolled across the nation. 

Early Tuesday morning, NBC New York reported that “hundreds of other protestors” also took another bridge: 

Hundreds of other protestors walked to the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge, making it as far as the toll plazas in Manhattan. They blocked traffic on the span that connects Manhattan to Queens and the Bronx, chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot.” NYPD officers set up barricades to prevent them from advancing further, and witnesses said they eventually crossed back into Harlem.

“When is enough going to be enough?” New York protestor Tiffany Brown told NBC. “It’s systematic and it’s institutionalized, and we have to do something.”
