Bronx residents unhappy with the grand jury decision in the Eric Garner case rallied tonight to voice frustration with the NYPD.
The rally started at around 4:30 p.m. at 161st Street and River Avenue, right in front of Yankee Stadium, and headed toward the courthouses.
Once demonstrators reached the DA's office, they chanted that Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson "needs to go." Demonstrators also chanted "I can't breathe " and "no justice, no peace."
Thursday night's rally is the first to take place in the Bronx, but organizers say this won't be the last.
