NYPD Officers Barricade the Manhattan Bridge

In US news and current events today, protesters and police had an hours-long standoff after the NYPD barricaded the Manhattan Bridge, leaving hundreds stranded in a precarious situation.

The Black Lives Matter protests that have sprung up in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd have sparked a nationwide outrage over police brutality, police violence and the systemic injustice faced by Black Americans. The NYPD and their response to the mostly peaceful protests have been widely criticized, as many peaceful protesters have been arrested and assaulted while widespread looting continues seemingly unchecked. The BLM protests and George Floyd protests have spurred the nation to demand change in policing, but tensions only seem to escalate when peaceful protests are met with more violence.
