    New York City police used excessive force during the wave of protests across the city this summer against police brutality and racism, according to a report published by New York City’s Department of Investigation.

    “The NYPD’s use of force and certain crowd control tactics to respond to the protests produced excessive enforcement that contributed to heightened tensions,” New York City Department of Investigation Commissioner, Margaret Garnett said.

    The NYPD deployed officers who lacked sufficient or sufficiently recent training on policing protests.”

    New York City Mayor, Bill de Blasio, said in response, “It’s time for change.

    “I’m taking my responsibility for mistakes that were made and decisions that turned out to be wrong.”
