Around 8 p.m. Thurs., Sept. 22, protesters demonstrating against the execution of Troy Davis the day before were marching down Thompson St. in front of the trendy 60 Thompson hotel, when they met a huge police presence and blockade at Broome St., causing them to turn back uptown. Two days later, a larger protest saw marchers walk up Broadway to Union Square.
