Thursday afternoon I left the neighborhood and covered some news downtown in the financial district with a new Leica M8.
Like the earlier protest on 5th ave last week this protest was a response to the recent police shooting of a civilian which involved the loseing of 50 rounds of amunition and the death of one man , Sean Bell , and the wounding of Trent Benefield and Joseph Guzman. .
The protest was directed by police commanders back and forth through downtown streets finally allowing the protestors to march down Wall Street and assemble at the old U.S. treasurey.
I know of no serious confrontations that resulted in violence though tempers on both sides did flare at times .
The M8 again did it's job . Thanks to Fotocare at 136 west 21st street for their assistance .
