New York City seems to be concerned with how the NYPD is handling the protests.
Protests have erupted all across the country in light of the murder of George Floyd and countless other people of color at the hands of the police. These protests have gotten violent although the escalation always seems to be induced by the cops and not the actus protesters themselves. In New York City, this is especially true as the police are constantly being caught on video getting rough with the people who are peacefully protesting.
According to reporter Lisa Evers, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio has now revealed that the city will be doing an independent investigation into the way the police are treating protesters, although this review will also go both ways. It seems as though New York also wants to look at how protesters have been treating the police.
As of right now, it remains to be seen how these protests will continue to play out. Yesterday was the fifth night of protesting and the government doesn't seem all that interested in restoring people's faith. Simply put, people are angry and until some tangible change is created, these protests could go on for quite some time.
