6th night in row of protests after Eric Garner decision blocks 14th st Bridge

On the 8th of December, civil rights protesters shut down streets in evening rush hour for the 6th day in a row since a grand jury refused to indict NY cops for the chokehold death of Eric Garner. This is now the 3ed week of frequent street protests since St Louis cop Darren Wilson was also not indicted in the shooting death Michael Brown. At around 8PM protesters blocked the 14th st Bridge, stopping traffic there for the third time in a week.

After police read out the second of the required 3 warnings for arrest, protesters marched off the bridge headed for the US Dept of Justice and Chinatown.
