New York State Sues NYPD Over Its Handling Of 2020 Racial Justice Protests

Shouting protesters face NYPD officers during a Black Lives Matter demonstration last summer in New York City, in outrage over the death of a Black man in Minnesota who died after a white policeman knelt on his neck for several minutes.

The state attorney general’s office says it has received “more than 1,300 complaints and pieces of evidence” about the police response to the protests in New York City.
