Ferguson Protesters Create Mass Gridlock In New York City
Thousands of protestors gathered around New York City Tuesday night, one night after a grand jury decided not to indict police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August. As of around 10pm, protesters had reportedly blocked traffic near Wall Street, Times Square, the United Nations, the FDR Drive, Lincoln Tunnel, and numerous city bridges at various points in the evening. The protesters shut down the Lincoln Tunnel earlier in the evening, but it was reopened around 8:30 pm. Earlier in the day, more than a dozen City Council members walked out on their chambers in protest of the non-indictment, according to NY1. <div>Please enable Javascript to watch this video</div>.
