'March 2 Justice’ Crosses Into Jersey, Pennsylvania

A 250-mile march protesting police brutality crossed into Trenton as well as parts of Pennsylvania on Tuesday. Protesters with the "March 2 Justice" marched in Trenton and parts of Bucks County early Tuesday evening. The demonstration is taking protesters from New York City to Philadelphia to Capitol Hill. The March 2 Justice began Monday morning in Staten Island, the borough where Eric Garner died during a confrontation with NYPD officers last summer. Garner's death, along with others across the nation including that of Ferguson teen Michael Brown, set off protests that culminated with several nights of massive marches when a grand jury chose not to charge the officer seen putting Garner in a chokehold in a widely viewed amateur video with any crimes.
