The “disappointing” crowd for Rubio’s event in Hialeah, Florida was captured on a CNN broadcast, with the news network showing the nearly empty stadium in which it unfolded. TPM posted a picture from the broadcast, which can be seen below:

Correspondent Jason Carroll said that the event drew a “couple hundred” supporters, who were “not even filling the end zone” at the stadium.

The Manhattan District Attorney announced on Friday that his office would not be prosecuting protesters arrested for low-level crimes.

Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance, Jr. announced that Unlawful Assembly and Disorderly Conduct would not be prosecuted during the demonstrations over police violence.
