Here is a picture of New York State Senator Zellnor Myrie, pepper sprayed and handcuffed.
Senator Myrie has a masters degree in urban studies, and a law degree from Cornell University. At Cornell, he served as student government president, prison law instructor, and pro bono scholar.
After law school, he joined the law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell where he worked pro bono to fight police brutality.
I think the NYPD picked the wrong guy to mess with. But worse, for every Zellner Myrie, there are thousands of other peaceful protesters who are being violated right now that will not make headlines.
I think this will not end well.
