A Peaceful Violin Vigil For Elijah McClain Gets Interrupted By Aurora PD

Aurora PD Boots and Pepper Sprays Peaceful Protesters at Violin Vigil for Elijah McClain

Cops in Aurora, CO came in like a military unit to forcibly remove — not to mention pepper spray — peaceful protesters who were watching a violin performance to honor Elijah McClain.

This went down Saturday in City Center Park, where a musical vigil had been planned to pay respects to Elijah — who died while in custody of Aurora PD last year — which was incredibly symbolic, seeing how Elijah played violin himself. At one point, the police had seen enough.

In the video, captured by a vigilant bystander, you can see the jarring juxtaposition play out live on camera. At first, you hear the violinists — some of whom are said to have been underage — beautifully playing in unison, and the next minute … cops are storming the place. Source
