Some say that I was once uncommonly beautiful, but I wouldn’t wish beauty on any woman who has not her own freedom, and who chooses not the hands that claim her.
A protest march in Brooklyn, New York, on Monday night turned into a confrontation between police and demonstrators amid reports of bottles being thrown at officers out of anger over the shooting death of a 16-year-old boy at the hands of New York Police detectives.
Video posted on YouTube early Tuesday morning showed demonstrators throwing metal barricades onto the street as police arrived on the scene. One woman, who said she knew Gray, said all protesters wanted was justice.
“Stop killing our babies. They are our babies,” she said into a megaphone. “Stop killing our kids. Stop coming to our neighborhood and killing us off. We’re paying you guys to protect the children, not to kill the children. We are sick and we are tired of this. It’s our tax money, not yours. We pay you to protect us. Enough is enough. We need justice now.”
The video also showed protesters chanting, “NYPD, KKK, how many kids did you kill today?”
Police said the detectives shot and killed Gray on Saturday after he waved a gun at them, but witnesses have disputed that account.
