Protests following the murder of George Floyd are still raging on. In cities all around America, people are coming outside and letting it be known that they’re mad as hell and they’re not gonna take it anymore.
Chicago, Detroit, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, and Los Angeles are just a few of the cities where cops, secret soldiers, and law enforcement officers are deployed nightly to quell peaceful protesters with state violence.
C.J. Montano was one of those peaceful people who attempted to speak to officers while raising his hands in the air to demonstrate that he was not a threat. Didn’t matter. Cops still unloaded rubber bullets on his face, abdomen, and face. C.J. spoke to ABC7 from the hospital where he was recovering:
“I’m on blood thinners, so I started leaking blood pretty bad,” he said. “This one gentleman, I don’t know his name. I had my arm around him. He carried me a block away.”
That doesn’t sound non-lethal to us, how bout you?
Today, the LAPD announced that they are investigating the incident and also released body camera footage to the public.

This guy clearly wasn’t threatening the officers. There was absolutely no reason to shoot him.
