Kordy #3

Kimani's birthday party ended when the police brought a single car and parked it next to the party, which was at that point winding down. Someone tossed a bottle at the police car, cracking a windshield. This brought an immediate response from the police who had been waiting in vans down the street out of sight. In thirty seconds there were at least sixty (or more) police lined up along the sidewalk. A white officer began barking orders for everyone to disperse. Carol Gray confronted him about the provocation of police swarming an event to honor her son who'd been murdered by the NYPD. The white Officer said simply "I didn't kill anyone AND I got a broken windwhield now! Party's over." Carol Gray took a microphone and told the police "I am not leaving, my kids are here, we have things to do." The kids in the crowd began to make a mocking sound "aaagggaaahhhh" at the police In a surprising turn of events (perhaps influenced by having a large team of videographers present) police backed off and retreated down the block.
