New York was hit for the third nite and the last report I saw, over 600 people have been arrested.
New York State Attorney General Letitia James will review all actions and procedures used during protests in New York City and issue a public report within 30 days.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo made the announcement after an incident Friday night, May 29 in which an NYPD officer was seen on video shoving a female protestor to the ground in Brooklyn.
There were protests Saturday in Times Square, Columbus Circle, Harlem, the East Village, Jackson Heights in Queens, the Flatbush section of Brooklyn and portions of the Bronx and Staten Island.
"We saw disturbing violent clashes amidst protests right here in New York City," Cuomo said on Saturday, "and I'm asking Attorney General James to review the actions and the procedures that were used last night because the public deserves answers and they deserve accountability."
Seven arrests were made outside Trump Tower where some protesters refused police orders to move out of Fifth Avenue and on to the sidewalks Saturday night. A total of about 600 arrests have been made in protests in the city the last three days.
"Peaceful protest is a basic civil right," James said. "That right should be protected and guarded. We take the designation to investigate last night's actions very seriously.
"We will act independently to seek answers, ensure that the truth is laid bare and that there is accountability for any wrongdoing. We will be transparent in our findings as we seek accountability for those who did wrong."
James said anyone with information about any incidents at protests, including visual evidence, should email them to: email@example.com.
"Please share it with our office so we can take it into account as we proceed with this investigation," she said.
