In Albany, New York, protesters are continuing to camp across the street from the New York State Capitol. On Sunday, local police refused to remove the protesters from the park in defiance of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the city’s mayor. One police official said, "These people were not causing trouble. The bottom line is the police know policing, not the governor and not the mayor."
