" Whose streets? "-- Thousands of protesters stormed New York City streets Monday night, shutting down at least three bridges and snarling traffic

NEW YORK -- Thousands of protesters stormed New York City streets Monday night, shutting down at least three bridges and snarling traffic in response to a grand jury's decision not to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who fatally shot unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, in August.

Hordes of New Yorkers marched from Union Square to Times Square, up FDR Drive and across the Triboro, Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges, shouting chants of "You say get back, we say fight back!" and "Whose streets? Our streets!" By 1:30 Tuesday morning, authorities had shut down all three bridges:

In Times Square, a protester was arrested after splattering NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton with fake blood. There were a number of other arrests, and other officers suffered minor injuries, reports said.

The decision not to indict Wilson resonated with many New Yorkers who were also angry about the recent police killing of Akai Gurley, an unarmed 28-year-old who was shot to death last Friday by a rookie NYPD officer in the stairwell of a Brooklyn public housing project. On Tuesday, a number of protesters carried signs bearing Gurley's photograph alongside calls to "end police terrorism from NYC to Ferguson."

Other demonstrators invoked the image of Eric Garner, the Staten Island father who was also unarmed when he died in a police chokehold last July after being arrested for illegally selling cigarettes.

Protesters in Union Square thought the Ferguson decision represented part of a larger problem and said they had no plans to stop demonstrating anytime soon. "Innocent people are routinely shot, and these people are young, black and male," Michael Chou, 24, told The Huffington Post. "I will protest as long as it's needed to make a point about that."

Anta Toure, 19, agreed. "If the cops protected the people, like they're supposed to, then Michael Brown would still be alive," she said. "I won't stop protesting until I see some sort of change. I'll protest at my university, at my job, wherever I see some space."
