Second Day of Protests in Wake of Garner Grand Jury Decision


For the second day in a row, protesters have taken to the streets throughout the U.S. in wake of a grand jury decision not to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo in the killing of Eric Garner.

On Thursday, protests continued in New York City as well multiple locations throughout the the country including Chicago, Dallas, Washington, D.C. and more. Via NBC:

Thousands of protesters, chanting “hands up, don’t shoot,” and “shut the whole system down,” marched across the Brooklyn Bridge, shut down parts of the West Side Highway, and staged blocked traffic in demonstrations all over Manhattan. In Chicago, hundreds of protesters walked onto an expressway and brought traffic to a halt on a busy thoroughfare. And in Washington, D.C, a large crowd staged a “die-in” a block from the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony near the White House.

Protesters also marched through downtown Dallas and Indianapolis this evening.

Below are images from social media depicting Thursday’s protests:
