SEATTLE -- Dozens of people took to the streets of Seattle to protest what they call an epidemic of police brutality.
Many of them are still downtown as of Tuesday afternoon, blocking traffic at Seattle police headquarters at 5th and Cherry.
This is part of a nationwide day of protest with similar demonstrations in New York, Los Angeles, Oakland and Ferguson, Missouri.
Students walked out of Seattle Central Community College and walked down to Westlake Park where the crowd blocked traffic for more than an hour.
The protesters are outraged about the police shooting in South Carolina where an officer was caught on camera shooting a man in the back.
