"Don’t Shoot Me": Phalanx of Cops Arrest And Pepper Spray Protesters At Third Kimani Gray Vigil: Gothamist
For the third night in a row, people took to the streets of East Flatbush to voice their outrage at the NYPD’s fatal shooting of Kimani “Kiki” Gray. Though the 16-year-old’s death was the most obvious catalyst the night’s protest, it was clear that frustration with the NYPD extended beyond this one case, as demonstrators taunted cops all night with chants of “Don’t Shoot Me!”
Over the course of four hours, people from Kimani’s neighborhood mixed with activists from other parts of NYC, marching through the predominantly African-American neighborhood and numbering in the hundreds at the protest’s peak. The demonstrators at times walked down the middle of Church Avenue, regularly chanting “No justice, no peace.”
… One particularly tense stand-off between a female demonstrator and a male police officer began with the cop telling her to get on the sidewalk, and her responding, “Or what, you’ll shoot me?” The officer, whose helmet had the number 7987 on it, said, "No, but I’ll slap you."
