On May 27, hundreds of protesters gathered in New York City to protest the New York Supreme Court’s decision to charge two NYPD policemen with “official misconduct,” as opposed to convicting them for rape. The two officers were accused of raping an unconscious woman, and one of the officers had confessed on tape to penetrating the woman while wearing a condom, though he later denied it.
