Who do you call when the cops are the criminals? In a despicable display of police brutality, police riot as cops across the nation respond to peaceful protesters and journalists with unprovoked violence.

Slate reports:

The ongoing protests following the killing of George Floyd were caught up in violence again on Saturday, as police all over the country tear-gassed protesters, drove vehicles through crowds, opened fire with nonlethal rounds on journalists or people on their own property, and in at least one instance, pushed over an elderly man who was walking away with a cane…
