Protesters took over the streets of Downtown Brooklyn Friday night, voicing their displeasure with the NYPD and the MTA.
Over 1,000 people attended the rally that got loud and rowdy. Protesters were seen from Metro-Tech down to BAM, the Barclays Center and then back up north. They took over the streets and shut down traffic along the way.
The whole time organizers remained tight-lipped about where they were headed. They tirelessly marched and shouted anti-police, anti-MTA and anti-gentrification chants.
They were eventually led to the NYPD Transit District at Hoyt-Scermerhorn where some of the officers involved in the viral scuffle with teenagers were based, letting them know how they feel.
There were some acts of vandalism, several walls and police cars spray painted over and at least one window was shattered.
Police tell News 12 no one has been arrested at this time.
