BREAKING: Anti-Police Demonstrators Marching On Brooklyn Streets To Protest NYPD

More than a thousand protesters are marching through Brooklyn and swamping subway stations to express their outrage.

Brooklyn, NY – More than 1,000 protesters filled the streets of Brooklyn on Friday evening chanting “no justice, no peace” in response to videos that showed New York Police Department (NYPD) officers fighting with teens inside subway stations (videos below).

Shortly before 9 p.m. on Nov. 1, hundreds of protesters flooded Brooklyn subway stations in a “mass fare evasion” to protest the “criminalization of poverty.”

The protests were sparked by two videos that emerged of two different incidents involving NYPD officers and teenagers, a few hours apart in two different subway stations, on Oct. 25, WABC reported.

The first incident occurred when NYPD officers responded to break up a fight between two groups of teenagers on the platform of the Jay Street- MetroTech subway station.

The video showed a police officer punching one teen and taking a swing at another in the middle of the melee, WCBS reported.

Several teens were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and assaulting a police officer.

After the cell phone video of the fight was posted to social media, anti-police activists were furious and demanded action.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams has called for the termination of the officer who punched the teens in the video, WCBS reported.

“To me, he went beyond the call of duty,” Adams said. “You’re not in a boxing match. That is not the goal and what I saw in that video is clearly outside of any training that I ever received in the police department.

“He took a chaotic situation that police had under control and he almost turned it into a riot situation based on his actions,” he told WCBS.

NYPD released a statement that said the officer who punched the teen had been put on desk duty pending the resolution of an investigation into the incident.

The second incident was captured on video at the Franklin Street subway stop just a few miles away.

The video showed police outside a stopped subway car with its doors still closed, and passengers moving away from the part of the car where the cell phone camera was focused.

In the video, at least one officer on the platform can be seen pointing a gun at the window of the occupied subway car, the New York Post reported.

Once the train cleared, a young man was sat alone on a seat facing the officers outside the subway car, with both of his hands in the air.

After a moment, the doors of the train car opened and two officers rushed in and took the teen to the ground, the video showed.

Then no less than 10 additional officers rushed into the subway car, several with their guns drawn or just starting to return their weapons to their holsters.

“In case you’re wondering how an arrest in NYC goes down,” Elad Nehorai captioned the video he posted to Twitter. “The guy has made absolutely no indication that he would flee or fight and wasn’t trying to hide.”

NYPD defended the officer in a statement and said that police had chased the suspect – 19-year-old Adrian Napier – into the Pacific Street subway station after a witness reported that he had brandished a gun near Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues, the New York Post reported.

No gun was found on Napier when he was arrested, but NYPD said the suspect is a known member of the Crips street gang and has been arrested 14 times in the past for crimes including assault, robbery, and grand larceny.

Napier was charged with theft of services for jumping a turnstile and taken in for questioning in an unrelated larceny case, the New York Post reported.

The demonstration began on Friday evening in Brooklyn’s McLaughlin Park and spread through the borough as hundreds more joined.

Shortly before 9 p.m., hundreds of protesters headed into subway stations where they proceeded to jump turnstiles to reach the platform in what they called a “mass fare evasion" to protest the “criminalization of poverty.”

Regarding the video above, not the one of the subway car available at the link above...

Fair hit. At 0:06, the perp throws a punch at what appears to be an LEO. Watch at 0.25 speed. He deserved to get pounded.

Elad....evidently your'e talking about a different video, cause no one drew a weapon! As far as striking the dude, didn't show what he'd done! Wasn't they in a brawling fist fight with other guys....guess the NYPD shoulda just looked the other way, then when one of the " young men " got pushed onto the tracks and killed.......Can't win!

Funny how there is no condemnation of the youths fighting or a man brandishing a gun. Nope, that's not the way these activists work and it fully explains why these youths act that way. The next time the NYPD receives a call of youths fighting, they need to turn off their emergency lighting, stop for every light, and obey the speed limit. Hopefully by the time they arrive, the streets will be cleared or littered with bodies. Either way, call the street sweepers for cleanup.

I don't know how police are supposed to do their jobs under these circumstances. It's not against people of color. Many of the officers are people of color. The protests/riots like these are what they do in uncivilized countries. This is anarchy and gang members love this. They get support and play the vic tim.

Society appears close to breaking down in NYC. I wonder what powerful Liberal forces are funding and organizing these things?

The cops should let them kill each other than just come in and pick up the dead. Then move on to the next one.

People need to not rush to judgement. Being a retired PO, Adams should know better than to armchair quarterback. Last time I checked, we don't get paid to get hit and certainly do not have to wait to be hit to use physical force. Hopefully this Officer can articulate that. For all we know, that asshole was threatening the Officer with bodily harm or threw a punch we didn't see. We don't know the totality of the circumstances. I tell perps all the time when they tell me what I can and can't do: Your perception of the law is not how the law is written. YouTube is not an accredited law school.

It's only going to get worse come January. However, it is interesting and very telling to see even liberal idiots like Letitia James saying that these new criminal justice "reforms" are a bad idea: https://nypost.com/2019/10/30/progressive-ag-letitia-james-warns-about-new-yorks-coming-criminal-justice-disaster/

The NYPD should take a long overdue Vacation for a few day and see how that works for them.

It has gotten to the point where it isn't even about bad cops but law enforcement all together. Where is Black Lives Matter? Where are the black leaders saying violence against the law enforcement is as wrong as bad cops? Evidently, they condone this. Be prepared America segregation will be making a come back, but this time it will be law building citizens living together & thugs & criminals living in their own chaos.

These new gen cops need to let these animals kill one another and Mop it up later.

Stop with proactive policing. Take a 61 and pick up next job.

Let these cool aid drinking clueless bosses put their hands on people.

Let it all implode.

Reactive response policing.

Why not give them what they want? Build walled ghettos like Germany and let them live with no public service, & no health care and they can only leave the ghetto to leave the country. They want to live like the wild rats they are, let them.

Sure is funny how "they", the 13%'ers, don't focus on ALL thr crime they commit, just that they were caught and resisted arrest. I mean jeez, the 2nd video of the 19 year old had 14 prior arrest and is involved with the crips. He was seen with a gun, ditched it as he ran until caught. JUST DON'T DO CRIME! It's just thst simple. But they'll (13'ers) will never stop and will keep blaming the police for arresting them. Just truly disgraceful and disgusting way of life. Yes, pull out patrols and let them kill each other, arrest the remaining for muder, tear down the ghettos and rebuild.

These idiots and thugs are upset because they won’t be slowed to violate the law. Their parents failed them by never saying no to them.

Act like a wild animal, you’ll be treated accordingly.

“Criminalization of poverty”...people can’t afford the subway, but they can afford a cell phone (wait, phones are paid for by us taxpayers) but they can afford expensive sneakers, oh, they may have been stolen them or robbed them from someone else. They have nice clothes but they could have been shoplifted.

Entitlement destroys humans. It turns people into savages.

If you can’t afford to live in New York, move to a place that you can afford. First, you need to earn your keep no matter where you live. That’s a foreign concept to many of these hood rats.

And these “teens” are out of control and they only know violence. Cops should hit them in the head with clubs. They hit one another with pipes and shoot each other. What’s the difference other than the police have justification because the teens are a serious threat to the safety and well being of society.

Here's why the BLM movement doesn't actually care about black people, and only cares about propagating hate, racism, riots and violence

To BLM, if you're black and you're murdered, your life ONLY matters if it was at the hands of a white man or cop (which literally account for less than 5% of black homicides)

Forget about the other 95% of blacks being ruthlessly murdered by other blacks, there is never any outrage about that tragic statistic

BLM will burn a city down, loot, and vandalize property over a black person shot by a white cop (whether is is justified or not) but when Kevin Davis is stabbed to death over a Popeyes chicken sandwich they couldn't care less

RIP Kevin Davis.

BLM doesn't care at all about you, but unlike them, I believe all lives matter INCLUDING ALL BLACK LIVES AND BLUE LIVES. It's horrible that we call the police evil any time they are forced to use lethal force but we aren't outraged about an innocent 28 year old black man that was just killed brutally by another black man OVER A CHICKEN SANDWICH

Fuck you BLM, and thank you blue for everything you do and have to put up with
