The “racist” system set free a Hispanic man for shooting a black teenager in self-defense. Can you imagine the reaction if there actually was a white guy involved?
A day of peaceful protests gave way to arrests and bottle throwing Sunday night as thousands took to the streets of New York to vent outrage over the verdict in the Trayvon Martin case.
From a rally at Union Square, thousands of demonstrators marched to Time Square and uptown chanting, “No Justice, No Peace!”
For the most part, cops stood by. But at E. 79th St. and Second Ave. police in riot gear moved in to arrest two people for disorderly conduct.
Cops had arrested at least more five protesters in a clash at Park Ave. and E. 71st St. around 10 p.m.
“It got chaotic,” said one protester, adding that bottles were thrown.
