NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Rev. Al Sharpton held an event in Harlem Wednesday with the family of Michael Brown — a day after 10 people were arrested as thousands again protested the decision not to indict a white Ferguson, Missouri, police officer in the shooting death of the unarmed black teenager.Showdowns Loom As Police, Prison Guards, Airport Workers Resist Vaccines
Garner died in July after being placed in a chokehold by an NYPD officer. An unarmed Gurley was fatally shot by a rookie police officer in Brooklyn last week.
Sharpton said he hopes “America realizes the pain of these families,” and led them through what he called a bonding prayer.
“They share each others’s pain and understand what we don’t understand,” Sharpton said.
