Arguments between New York Police Department (NYPD) solidarity protesters and anti-police-brutality activists ensued in New York on Friday, with police placing barriers between the two opposing sides to keep them apart.

Converging as a collective alliance to the NYPD, the solidarity protesters showed support for the police, who they say are protecting the city and legally arresting lawbreakers. Anti-police brutality protesters argued that the police are guilty of unlawful homicide, referring to the deaths of unarmed African-Americans Eric Garner and Michael Brown at the hands of white police officers in New York City and Ferguson, Missouri.
