Since George Floyd was senselessly murdered in Minneapolis, MN by former Officer Derek Chauvin there have been protests in every single state, calling out racism and police brutality. While some police officers have taken the protests as an opportunity to show compassion and have lived up to their duty to protect and serve our citizens. Others however, have continued to put disgrace on the title — take for example police in Kansas City, Missouri where officers were FILMED initiating brutality by storming a group of peaceful protestors.

We could not find any explanation for that act of force, but as of Tuesday afternoon the department had provided the public with information on how to register complaints over excessive force.
We also found a post from Monday where the cops had declared a protest unlawful due to items being thrown at them.
