Denver police ordered to stop using tear gas and plastic bullets in protests

The temporary injunction was in response to a local lawsuit filed on Thursday in the Denver District Court by protesters complaining about excessive force used by officers during public demonstrations following the death of an unarmed black man, George Floyd, in police custody in Minneapolis last month. “Peaceful demonstrators’ legitimate and credible fear of police retaliation is silencing their political speech,” it said.
