A selection of videos of police brutality and misbehavior toward the public in the wake of the killing of George Floyd by police officers in Minneapolis.
Below is a collection of some of the many videos posted to Instagram and YouTube documenting police brutality and misconduct toward the public in the wake of the George Floyd killing.
Many were posted to the instagram account for SuperChief Gallery, an “independent, artist-run” venue with locations on the East and West Coasts. (Hat tip to Colin Lacey for his assistance on this front.)
The videos are from all across the U.S.: Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Buffalo, Chicago, New York City and so on. They show a disturbing pattern of behavior, an “us vs. them” mentality, and a commonplace violence toward demonstrators that should not be characteristic of any form of public service.
My friend lives on Hollywood & Argyle. He just sent me a video of a pile of police taser-ing a woman. The police are now shooting rubber bullets at anyone who comes out over the overlook to stop filming of the incident. Police brutality needs to end. #BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/mwAT63RmhW
