Citizens took to the streets to protest the brutality of the police, but faced even greater brutality.
It is reported by The New York Times.
The editors of the publication made allegations against the mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio. A democrat and one of the most famous American liberals was distinguished by the fact that he set law enforcement officers against participants in peaceful protests. As an example, NYT cites a recent rally in the Cadman Plaza area in northwestern Brooklyn. There demonstrators, faced with policemen in protective gear, raised their hands and began to sing. In response, the security forces beat them with batons.
Such incidents have ceased to be a rarity in recent days, writes the NYT. They emphasize that peaceful protesters are beaten as well as radicals who organize pogroms.
“New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is responsible for the inability of the city to protect the safety of its inhabitants. As evidence of ill-treatment by the police appeared, he looked away, insisting on Thursday that the police department was using the easiest methods possible”, – the article says.
The publication emphasizes that the New York Police Department, although operating under harsh conditions, nevertheless “does not fulfill the requirements of this moment”, and its employees “are allowed to behave in such a way as to disgrace their mission of protection and service”.
