VIDEO: Protests Clog Streets of New York City Following Eric Garner Decision

At least 83 people were arrested overnight as throngs of New York protesters overtook the city’s roads, swarmed its monuments and demanded justice for a Staten Island man who died in a police officer's chokehold.

After a grand jury failed to indict Officer Daniel Pantaleo Wednesday, demonstrators marched on the Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central Terminal, Columbus Circle and Rockefeller Center.

New York was not alone: Protests swept the county from Georgia to California late Wednesday and early Thursday.

Overnight, NYPD officers arrested 83 people, Police Commissioner William Bratton said. Nearly all of the arrests were for disorderly conduct, the New York Daily News reports. No injuries were reported.

More protests are planned today.

To much time on their hands. That's what happens when one doesn't have to work & lives off the tax payers dollar(s). New York City must be rolling in the new De Blabio tax money. Only in America.

You got that right Rookie, I wonder what they are going to do when the golden goose stops laying the golden egg.
