Many Fort Worth residents including children and pets were at the 7th street bridge peacefully demonstrating sunday 5/31/2020 and were met with an excessive use of force and intimidation from the Fort worth police and assisting State, federal and government agents. We were clearly outnumbered and overpowered at least 20 officers to 1 protester and would like to open full investigation to why excessive force was used and 50+ demonstrators were arrested and mistreated while in police custody and tear gas deployed which has not been used in Fort Worth in 30 years. The police department created a very dangerous environment for those demonstrators and residents at 7th street bridge and in park 5/31/2020 bringing out all the weapons they have from the latest surveillance technologies, armed plain clothes "crowd agitators" to full riot gear, military vehicles, flash bangs, tear gas, rubber bullets and live rounds the police and assisting agencies were definitely escalating the situation and unlawfully arrested demonstrators with a budget that may be into the millions vs peaceful demonstrators with a budget under $1000 if that. We need all charges dropped against peaceful demonstrators and accountability immediately along with defunding of the police department. The police chief claims Clorox was thrown at police when they found empty bottles of maalox which is used to wash pepper spray from eyes of demonstrators. Justification and A cover up of the battle at 7th street bridge is what the city of Fort Worth is seeking. If you were arrested, or present on the bridge or on west end by park or you simply agree with what you have seen across the state or have similar experiences to share from this day please sign and share.
