Protestors march in SF against police brutality






Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of San Francisco this afternoon as part of Nationwide Shutdown Day to protest against police brutality.

The protests come in the wake of the latest police shooting caught on video. Last week, Tulsa police released a video of a sheriff deputy who fatally shot a suspect with his gun. The suspect got into an altercation with police after allegedly trying to sell guns to undercover cops. According to the Washington Post, the man was unarmed.

Reserve Deputy Robert Bates, 73, claims to have shot the 44-year-old suspect, Eric Harris, on accident. In a phone interview, Bates told Tulsa World that he meant to use his taser. Harris was taken to a local hospital where he later died.

“Mr. Bates is charged with Second-Degree Manslaughter involving culpable negligence,” Tulsa County District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler said in a statement.

Here’s a brief recap of the protest that took place at city hall and 24th & Mission. You can check out the full recap on Storify.
