The NYPD on Friday when to the apartment of a peaceful protestor with military gear, drones, K-9 units, helicopters. All to arrest him, without a warrant, because he allegedly caused hearing loss for a police officer by using a bullhorn to close to the officer.
This is nothing more than intimidation by a power hungry police department. It could have easily been handled by surveying, then quietly serving a warrant.
There was absolutely no need to come in with so much gear to a arrest a nonviolent, peaceful protestor.
The protestor, Derrick Ingram, is part of the group Warriors In The Garden, who are a collective of activists dedicated to non violent protest.
This is why we need to #DefundThePolice .
