Tensions are running high as Election Day draws near. The NYPD is expected to have strategic response officers across the city and aviation units will also have a bird’s eye view of trouble spots in the event that protests get out of hand. Over the weekend, anti-Trump protesters clashed with cops in Chelsea, and nearly a dozen of them ended up in jail. Among those arrested was Hawk Newsome, an organizer with the Black Lives Matter movement in New York. He explained what happened and how he was treated while in jail.
