Protest at Arraignment for Student Bloodied During Arrest

Protesters gathered at a Virginia courthouse Thursday to protest the brutal arrest of Martese Johnson, a black student whose head was gashed open when alcoholic beverage control agents allegedly smashed his face into the ground on March 18th. The bloody arrest set off protests on the University of Virginia campus and around the country, fueling an on-going debate about police abuse of minorities. Around 150 of Johnson's supporters filled the courthouse at his arraignment on Thursday.
