WATCH: @ChrisJansing reports from Manhattan Bridge in New York where protesters have entered a standoff with police. "I talked earlier to some protesters who were marching and breaking curfew ... They said, 'this is a sign to police that we are taking back our streets.'"
NYC police trapped hundreds of peaceful protesters on a bridge for 2 hours as they marched from Brooklyn to Manhattan. Police stood on both sides, holding zip-ties, before letting them go back. 200+ protesters were arrested across NYC on Tuesday, bringing the total to ~1,500.

Protesters from Brooklyn are seen crossing Manhattan Bridge earlier tonight, closing lanes to traffic.
Police trapped protestors on Manhattan Bridge for two hours. Police on both ends. Almost like they were trying to provoke protestors into being unruly so they could attack with impunity.
