Binghamton University Students Protest Police Brutality

Protests continued Thursday in cities across the country, a day after a Staten Island grand jury decided not to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo. Pantaleo was captured on video using a chokehold to arrest Eric Garner, leading to the 43-year-old unarmed black man’s death. At Binghamton University, about 100 students gathered to demonstrate against police brutality. They observed a four-and-a-half-minute silence. The length of the silence was the same amount of time that the body of Michael Brown, another unarmed black man whose death at the hands of police led to a grand jury declining to indict, lay in the street.
