      George Floyd Protest In Union Square Met With “Aggressive” NYPD Response, Multiple Arrests

      At least four people have been arrested at a heated protest in Union Square on Thursday evening, the latest in a string of nationwide demonstrations sparked by the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

      Hundreds of people streamed into the Manhattan park on Thursday afternoon for the rally, where they were met with a massive and “aggressive” police presence, according to observers at the scene.

      “It keeps flaring up. There’s been about seven or eight arrests,” photographer Dee Delgado told Gothamist. “I just witnessed an officer put his knee on somebody’s neck.”

      According to a police scanner, one officer was struck with a garbage can, and suffered minor injuries.
