Now, here’s the final video we received in response to our public records request.
So far, the footage is the best look we’ve had at what transpired during that first protest in light of George Floyd’s killing by a Minneapolis cop.
The video, which is from May 29, shows officers using considerably more tear gas than was used in the days that followed. Unfortunately, cops pushed protestors out of view after a few hours and blocked off the streets surrounding City Hall.
Only body cam footage will answer what happened from there.
