Press Release

COLUMBUS, OH—U.S. Congresswoman Joyce Beatty (OH-03) issued the following statement after a confrontation between the Columbus Police and protesters on June 21, 2020:

“It is clear we have a disconnect among the Fraternal Order of Police, City officials and the people. If this is all about protesters not being in the streets, give them the streets and adequate notice when they must disperse. I urge the Mayor, City Council, advocates and all those who just a few days ago agreed with the decision to no longer use pepper spray on peaceful protestors to work together.

Clearly, we see yet again another instance of unnecessary force. If an individual or individuals become disruptive, remove them—not the entire crowd. I am going to continue to demand answers for why such force was used in the first place, especially when it was peaceful until police arrived in riot gear.”
