This happens in other US cities. In Kansas city security forces had joined the protest with a poster “End police violence”. In Miami and Santa Cruz police together with protesters knelt in protest against police brutality. This gesture became popular because of the NFL player Colin Kapernik who refused to stand during the singing of the national anthem before the game in protest against police brutality to African-Americans.
The chief of police Camden, new Jersey Joseph Wysocki stood at the head of the March carrying the banner “Together in solidarity”, and his colleague from the city of Fargo joined the protesters with a placard “We are all one race. The human race”.

Apparently cops in Kansas City joined the local protest against police brutality. And my first reaction was to say something smart ass. But this is truly a start. pic.twitter.com/e3sUwaR16h

Mass protests transfered into riots that swept the United States last week after posting online videos of the arrest of George Floyd on suspicion that he paid at the store with counterfeit cash.
On black handcuffed me and threw it on the road. White police officer Derek Chauvin pushed him with his knee on the neck. Floyd said that he could not breathe but the police, as seen on the recording, do not pay attention to it. Shortly thereafter, the African American died at the hospital. The four officers who detained Floyd, was fired may 26, suture detained and will soon appear before court.
On may 27 in Minnesota began street protests under the slogan “Black Lives Matter” (“black Lives matter”). During the protests was burnt down police station, which had to evacuate employees of law enforcement bodies. In Minneapolis sent troops of the national guard, there declared the state of emergency, and in some States that supported the protests, a curfew was imposed.
