    Buffalo Common Council passes resolution to rename city street 'Black Lives Matter'



    BUFFALO, N.Y. — Buffalo will soon have a street named "Black Lives Matter."

    The city's Common Council passed the resolution sponsored by Council President Rev. Darius Pridgen on Tuesday. Pridgen says he was moved to sponsor the legislation by a letter from an upcoming senior at the Frederick Law Olmsted school.

    Protesters march to mayor's house in wake of Niagara Square arrests

    A large group protesting police brutality in the wake of the arrests of demonstrators camped in Niagara Square staged a march and motorcade to Mayor Byron W. Brown's home in the Hamlin Park neighborhood Wednesday evening, chanting and carrying homemade signs.

    Video captured by an Investigative Post reporter showed Buffalo police officers holding back protesters and escorting the mayor to a waiting car, which drove him away.

    They should rename Grider Street "Black Lives Matter" since all black victims of gang/drug violence and shootings go to ECMC to die or get treatment.

    I know that. You see it happen every day.

    Renaming a street will not change anything.
