New York Judge Will Allow Protesters to Be Jailed for Over 24 Hours

HeadlineJun 05, 2020

Massive protests against racism and police brutality continued in cities across the United States for a 10th straight day, with more demonstrations planned throughout the weekend. Here in New York, police used clubs to beat back crowds of peaceful protesters Thursday as they marched in the Bronx past an 8 p.m. curfew. The NYPD says it arrested 170 protesters citywide. They face the prospect of a lengthy stay in crowded and unsanitary jails, after a Manhattan judge ruled the city could hold protesters beyond the state-mandated limit of 24 hours from arrest to arraignment.
