On New Year’s Day 50+ people gathered in New York City’s Grand Central Station for a “sing” to protest the police  killings of Black citizens  in New York  City and nationally. The song began with “ I can hear my brother crying ‘I can’t breathe’”  it was sung eleven times, the number of times Staten Islander Eric Gardner cried out as he was killed by a police choke hold. The only person   arrested that day  had  made a video of  the event which had gone viral.   The protesters noted that District Attorneys have  not indicted any police officer engaged in the racial shooting of Blacks.
