NOTICE OF FORMAL
ICMS #: 2020-0920
June 12, 2020
Complaint: The Office of Police Oversight received an anonymous online complaint stating the
officers were firing rubber bullets at protestors and SEVERELY injured someone. In the
video you see a group of people caring this poor individual to get medical attention and
once again, YOUR police officers started firing MORE BULLETS. BECAUSE THE
PROTESTORS WERE TRYING TO GET MEDICAL ATTENTION FOR Y O U R
ACTIONS. This is disgusting. Everyone puts their hands up and yet you hear shots
CONTINUED to be fired. All because they were trying to HELP SOMEONE. who were
the cops trying to help in this scenario? This is DISGUSTING. Train your officers how to
RESPONSIBLY protect people and teach them CRISIS INTERVENTION TACTICS. If
social workers can do it without guns and bulletproof vests, your cops can do it too. TRAIN
THEM BETTER. HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS. STOP
ALLOWING THEM TO HURT/MURDER PEOPLE FOR NO REASON.”
