Bway fight 5

Today there was a fight on Broadway, near Wall Street. I did not see the start of it, but one witness said the Black fellow was jumped by the other two fellows. The police came, and calmed things down very quickly, no guns were drawn, no one arrested and no one roughed up. The only tense moment was when the fellow who in one photograph is seen throwing a plastic milk tray at the Black fellow accused a dark complexioned Policeman of being a racist. "Racist!" The police officer yelled, his hand against the chest of the fellow, who was pushing at him! "RACIST! I'M HISPANIC ALSO!" The fellow who called him a racist then said, "I'M American Indian!" The officer laughed and said, "I didn't know that until you told me that!" In the end the police offered the one who got the worst of it medical help, he refused, and then made sure everyone went their own way. The police handled things in a very professional way.
