Incendiary tweets, march on police precinct mark anniversary of Ramarley Graham shooting

Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Ramarley Graham, who was shot by New York City police in the bathroom of his grandmother’s house following what police say was a drug sale. Graham’s family has filed suit against the city.

Occupy and other citizens groups marked the anniversary today by marching from the home where Graham was killed to the city’s 47th Precinct. Others posted tweets with the #RamarleyGraham hashtag, and few had kind words for the police.

Ostensibly about justice for Graham, the protest also included talk of revolution.
