Eric Garner Non-Indictment Protest, Day Two

These are my tweets from the second day of protests in New York City after the non-indictment of the NYPD officer who killed #EricGarner.

While the NYPD was largely hands-off during the equally large protests after the non-indictment of the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, they quickly and violently cracked down on the protests over the #EricGarner non-indictment, using physical violence, pepper spray, and a Long Range Acoustic Device (LRAD), or Sound Cannon, a weapon designed for the military and capable of causing permanent deafness.

Here is my full video of the LRAD being used on weapon mode against peaceful protesters that night:

And here is coverage of the NYPD’s use of the sound cannon as a weapon against peaceful protesters:
