Astonishingly, if unsurprisingly, the protests in the USA calling for an end to police violence were met with more police violence. Amnesty International has documented many of these instances in our recently released interactive map, pinpointing over 125 incidents where law enforcement unleashed tear gas, rubber bullets, impact rounds, pepper balls, even bikes and batons against protestors who included young children, in some cases targeting journalists, legal observers and medics.
