Photos of the NYPD from Last Night's Eric Garner Protests
Our contributors captured moments of rage and boredom.
New Yorkers flooded the streets in protest last night after a grand jury declined to indict the NYPD officer who killed Eric Garner by placing him in a choke hold last night. Given the circumstances things were surprisingly peaceful—there were no burning cop cars a la Ferguson—but of course the cops were out in force last night. Photo coverage of these events tends to naturally focus on the protesters, but we got so many great shots of law enforcement from out contributors that we decided to put together this collection of photos of the cops, along with a few of the protesters that we couldn't leave out.
