Video: 5 Arrested in NYC Protest Over Chicago Police Shooting That Killed Teen

VIDEO: 5 Arrested in NYC Protest Over Chicago Police Shooting

Five people were arrested Monday night in a demonstration near the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree in New York City, protesting the handling of a police shooting that killed a teenager in Chicago, reports WCBS.

The protest was held Monday night in the wake of the shooting by a Chicago Police officer that killed Laquan McDonald, 17, last year, and what critics allege was a cover-up for a year afterward.

Activist and organizer Keegan Stephan shot video of one of the arrests, which he called "violent" on the part of police at a peaceful protest. Stephan reported that the person arrested in the video was 16 years old.

In the video, police are seen handcuffing protesters, and officers appear to be struggling to restrain them. Others at the protest are heard calling an arresting officer a "pig" and demanding his badge number.

The protesters who were arrested were charged with obstruction of governmental administration, police said.

What are people in NY protesting things from Chicago. Was the protest mostly white or were their blacks in the crowd. Was this a black lies matter protest or something else. All lives matter.
