     Protestors are protesting peacefully with the means to evoke change. That’s all they want, they want racial justice and equality. They have no reason to protest in an otherwise violent matter. Many videos online have surfaced showing police officers using brute force and threatening substances like rubber bullets, which can harm/ possibly blind someone. 
     Pretty much all the videos online show protestors being peaceful but impactful. They only start to get violent in defense towards the police attacking them. The police have drug protestors around, arrested them, tackled them, shot rubber pellets at them, even tear gassing them. Tear gas is a substance like pepper spray that burns your face and eyes. A side effect of this gas is discomfort of your eyes and even sometimes blindness. There is also evidence of police attempting to run over crowds of protestors.
    Many videos show protestors doing nothing to provoke police officers except for protest which is what they came to do. Police officers are just picking and choosing who to harm and it’s ENOUGH. It’s not fair that only the violence of protestors and rioters are being shown, but the brutality of the police seems to conveniently not make it to major media.
