Funeral in the Bronx turns into confrontation with police in Melrose Projects

“THIS WAS A FUNERAL. These people were grieving and distraught over the loss of a woman they knew and loved. This is at Melrose Projects in The Bronx.⁣

I spoke to people who were there who said it was calm and beautiful. What police begin doing here is spraying pepper spray directly at all of the people. That’s when you see people coughing and moving. ⁣

Police then started shoving a teenage girl, who was also grieving, and she fought back. She lost it. We are going to see more of that. Of course, she is now in jail. As are others who got brutally arrested for not social distancing. ⁣”
