A Large Group Gathers in New York City to Protest

Demonstrators took to the streets in five other major US cities as the protests surrounding police brutality after Freddie Gray’s death earlier this month continue to grow.  While riot police continue to clash with violent protesters in Baltimore, several protesters were arrested in New York City for walking in the street and blocking traffic.

Houston, Washington DC, Boston, and Indianapolis also saw protests.  25 year-old Freddie Grey died on April 19th, apparently from spinal injuries sustained while in police custody after being arrested days earlier for carrying a knife.
