Share the News



As a group of police supporters walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, counter-protesters approached from the opposite direction to engage with the pro-cop marchers on Wednesday.

Police politely asked the pro-cop marchers to stop and immediately arrested all counter-protesters on the bridge. The police also told reporters to leave the bridge unless they want their press credentials revoked.

About 40 counter-protesters were arrested and reports came through of officers injured with minor facial lacerations.
