At least, according to a recent report by Amnesty International, titled, “USA: The World is Watching: Mass Violations by U.S. Police of Black Lives Matter Protesters’ Rights.”

Following the killing of George Floyd, the human rights organization documented what it reports as “serious human rights concerns in relation to the use of excessive force,” citing 125 separate incidents of police violence against protesters in 40 states and the District of Columbia.
