More than 200 New Yorkers took to the streets Saturday to protest the acquittal of the Minnesota cop who fatally shot Philando Castile.
The protesters marched through Harlem calling for justice and clutching signs with messages that included Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere MLK.
Im out here like I always come out here because justice has not been served, said Jabari Brisport, 29. And we cant let it slide every time a murderer, even one sanctioned by the government, commits a crime.
The 32-year-old Castile, an African-American cafeteria worker, was shot and killed during a July 2016 traffic stop in St. Paul. Officer Jeronimo Yanez opened fire after the motorist, a licensed gun owner, said he was carrying a firearm and reached toward his pocket or seatbelt.
Castiles girlfriend livestreamed the dying mans final moments on Facebook the result of a shooting that sparked outrage across the country.
