NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — Eric Garner’s mother joined the Reverend Al Sharpton and local lawmakers on Thursday to denounce those causing chaos at protests over the death of George Floyd. 

Gwen Carr stood beside Sharpton, City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and other local leaders as she called for protests to go on but asked for looting and rioting to end. 

“We ask the opportunists to go away. This is our movie and we don't want to be an extra in our movie,” she said.
