Protesters took to L.A.’s Hollywood Blvd. on Saturday to express outrage over a grand jury’s recent decision to not indict the police officer who killed Eric Garner in a choke hold.
The Hollywood Blvd. protesters, many of whom raised their hands in the air, spilled out into the street and shouted, “Hands up, don’t shoot,” as they marched.
Benched actor Carter MacIntyre posted video to Instagram of the protests. The video was filmed very close to the intersection of Hollywood and Highland, where a suspect was shot by police Friday. The suspect was transported to a hospital, where he died.
L.A. was among many cities where protests took place over the weekend following the jury decision Wednesday to clear NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo of killing Garner while arresting him in July.
On Friday, demonstrators in New York City staged “die-ins” in an Apple store and a Macy’s by laying on the floor. Meanwhile, the hashtag #CrimingWhileWhite exploded on Twitter this week.
The video of Hollywood Blvd. can be seen below.
