Eric Garner protest: NOLA Against Police Brutality

Eric Garner protest: NOLA Against Police Brutality – New Orleans rapper MartyrMan

On Friday, two days after a grand jury decided not to indict any of the officers involved in the killing of Eric Garner, I photographed a protest against police brutality in Jackson Square. Early in the evening another protest more than double the size took place at a mall on Canal Place where protesters staged a die-in.

While editing my photos I turned on the TV.  I wanted to catch up with news on protests taking place across the    country. Instead i got to hear news broadcasters’ opinions, none of which made an impression on me.
