Boston, MA Open 4 months
Last night, the police department were entirely out of line, shooting rubber bullets into the crowd indiscriminately, beating innocent protesters with batons, and pepper spraying them with apparent enjoyment-- unacceptable levels of violence from those who should have been trained in deescalation tactics, and whose job (allegedly) is to protect and serve the public. I am aware you have denounced those who resorted to violence, but peaceful protesters were injured and terrorized by members of the police force as well, despite having remained peaceful through the day and into the night. Where is the justice for them? Where are the headlines for my friends who were injured? Pepper sprayed? Beaten with batons, without offering any resistance?
