Protests in sympathy with Ferguson target NYPD

Protesters gathered outside the New York Police Department's Times Square location Monday night, expressing sympathy for protesters demanding arrests in the Ferguson, Mo. shooting of Michael Brown.

According to CBS-New York and the Associated Press, dozens of protesters rallied outside 1 Police Plaza and then marched to City Hall. Others gathered outside the NYPD's Times Square location.

Many echoed the calls for justice and action that have stretched protests in Ferguson, Mo. into a second week. They also invoked the names of unarmed black New Yorkers who died at the hands of the police.

As has been the case with much of the situation in Ferguson, people are tweeting pictures of what's happening.
