Police officer points gun at crowds in New York

An NYPD officer points his gun at protesters after a colleague was assaulted.

New York City Police Commissioner Dermot Shea says it would be one of six incidents to be investigated by the department’s Internal Affairs Bureau.

A curfew failed to quell another night of violence in the city, with many shops – including Macy’s and Nike – hit by looters.

Mayor Bill de Blasio introduced an 11 pm to 5 am curfew, which will be moved to 8pm on Tuesday.

De Blasio and Governor Andrew Cuomo said the outbreaks of violence the previous two evenings gave them no choice but to impose a curfew, even as they insisted they stood with the throngs of peaceful demonstrators against police brutality and racial injustice.
