Protesters march against police brutality in New York City subways

New York, November 4 (RHC)-- In New York City, over one thousand people flooded the streets of downtown Brooklyn to protest police brutality against residents accused of evading the subway fare.   A recent viral video showed police officers tackling and arresting at gunpoint a subway rider for allegedly not paying the $2.75 metro fare. 

Tiffany Ramos, an organizer of the protest, told reporters: “There’s a lot of people who can’t make ends meet.  They’re about to build like four new jails.  How does the city have money to build new jails, to put more police out there?  Why can’t we have more money and resources being devoted to education or to solve the homeless crisis, to fix our trains?  This is not right, and we’re here to hold police accountable for their actions.  And we’re here to make sure that no person of color gets criminalized for jumping the turnstile again.”
