Protesten in New York na vrijspraak blanke agent

Deze week werd New York City opnieuw geprotesteerd tegen de vrijspraak op woensdag van de grand jury van de blanke politieagent Daniel Pantaleo die de ongewapende Afro-Amerikaanse Eric Garner op 17 juli in een wurggreep hield, waardoor hij stikte.

Fellow protesters cheer those in police custody in a correction bus at the Manhattan side of the Manhattan Bridge Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, in New York, after several protesters were arrested as they tried to block the bridge entrance protesting against a grand jury's decision not to indict the police officer involved in the death of Eric Garner. A grand jury cleared a white New York City police officer Wednesday in the videotaped chokehold death of Garner, an unarmed black man, who had been stopped on suspicion of selling loose, untaxed cigarettes, a lawyer for the victim's family said.
