NYPD supporters wearing black hoodies with the words “I can breathe” demonstrated outside City Hall Friday evening, sparking a war of words with opposing protesters picketing at the same location.
Outnumbered 2 to 1, about 100 police supporters proudly sported the hoodies — a sick twist on Staten Island father of six Eric Garner’s final words as he died from a police chokehold on July 17.
They shouted “Don’t resist arrest,” every time demonstrators who believe Garner was murdered screamed “I can’t breathe.”
After going back and forth at each other, the anti-police brutality protestors jammed onto the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges to take their message to Brooklyn, causing massive traffic delays, according to the city’s Office of Emergency Management.
