Brooklyn activist rallies outside Gracie Mansion, claims NYPD is harassing her family
A Brooklyn activist is alleging that the NYPD is harassing her family.
Nupol Kiazolu was outside Gracie Mansion Friday evening to get the attention of Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Kiazolu has been an activist since she was 12, lending her voice to the Black Lives Matter movement. But now she claims NYPD officers have relentlessly harassed her family, including arresting her brother last month for swiping his friend into the subway.
Police sources confirmed the arrest and told News 12 it was his second arrest in January. They say both were for similar incidents of selling swipes or having altered MetroCards.
She says she has filed reports with the NYPD for the alleged harassment.
