Protesters call attention to police violence against African Americans


In Pittsburgh and across the country, multiple protests over the death of unarmed African Americans at the hands of police have been numerous. There were several in Pittsburgh alone last week in the wake of a New York grand jury's decision not to indict a police officer in the chokehold death of Eric Garner. There were protest marches and die-ins held Downtown and at the suburban Ross Park Mall to call attention to the violence. City Paper reporters and photographers captured scenes of the protests both locally and in New York City last week.
