MOTT HAVEN - Bronx residents and people from across New York held a rally in Mott Haven today to protest police brutality and the stop-and-frisk program.

The "Stop the Cops" march comes one year after the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida and Ramarley Graham in The Bronx. The 18-year-old Bronx resident was shot and killed in the bathroom of his home by an NYPD officer. Graham was unarmed at the time of his death.

The rally began on 138th Street and ended at 125th Street.
