Activist Miracle Boyd of GoodKids MadCity was injured by police in an attack caught on video. “You beat people up over a statue? You rough them up over a statue?” Ald. Jeanette Taylor said.
Activist Miracle Boyd, 18, had just finished addressing the crowd protesting at the statue when she says she got into an argument with an officer.
Boyd was viciously punched in the face by police, knocking out her front teeth, at a Chicago protest calling for the toppling of a Christopher Columbus statue over the weekend.
On Friday at least 1,000 people gathered around a statue in Grant Park where hordes of police clashed with demonstrators deploying pepper spray and beating people with wooden batons in what witnesses described as a ‘bloodiest’ protest so far.
