New York Attorney General Blasts NYPD Over Handling of Black Lives
Ben Chapman and Katie Honan
New York Police Department officers used excessive force in response to
a Black Lives Matter demonstration honoring Martin Luther King Jr. , New
York state Attorney General Letitia James said Tuesday.
Officers on Monday night arrested 29 protesters at the demonstration
outside City Hall in lower Manhattan, NYPD officials said. The charges
included disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, the officials said.
The protest, which drew hundreds of participants, began outside the
Barclays Center arena in Brooklyn and moved over the Brooklyn Bridge
into Manhattan, where officers clashed with demonstrators at City Hall
Park. Eleven officers suffered minor injuries in the incident, according
to the officials, including a captain who was struck by a bottle.
Ms. James, who last week filed a lawsuit against the NYPD over its
response to Black Lives Matter protests in New York City last year, said
Tuesday that videos circulating on social media showed that officers
acted too aggressively.

consequences,=94 Mr. Shea said. NYPD officials declined to comment on Ms.
James=92s statement on the arrests.

ago,=94 the Democratic mayor said.
