Police officers warmly addressed protesters demonstrating against the killing of George Floyd in Oakley and Brentwood, California, on Sunday.

During a rally in Oakley, Police Chief Eric Christensen knelt down to hug a protester.

In a nearby rally, Brentwood Police Chief Tom Hanson said, "I appreciate you guys, your right to come and peaceful protest." He went on to say, "We appreciate it, and we hear you. We are going to make some changes."

Violent protests have been taking place across the US after 46-year-old Afro-American George Floyd was killed at the hands of a police officer a week ago.

Protesters and rioters/looters are, in fact, two separate groups.

Not all cops are bad. A lot of people just start to generalize them...

This is when the statement “there’s good people on both sides” is appropriate

When the Police departments have bad officials running them, we see those beneath them reflecting those qualities. But with great leadership is born great followers that will someday also, be the leaders of tomorrow. Salute to these kind souls for giving back to the communities they are sworn to serve & protect.

There’s cops that make the badge then there’s cops that hide behind It

These are the moments that make America great, and they clearly have nothing to do with you know who.

It shows who are just protesters, and exposes the rest as instigators.

This is how it should be. Violence shouldn’t be the answer if some people are too blind to realise what they have done.
