As tensions escalated between police and protestors throughout the nation, some members of law enforcement showed solidarity with demonstrators by kneeling alongside them and participating in marches over the weekend.

The acts came as tensions boiled over in dozens of U.S. cities following the death of George Floyd, an African-American man who died in police custody. Several demonstrations have devolved into chaos, with police firing tear gas on protestors and some individuals smashing storefronts and setting buildings ablaze.

The article goes on to state the following:

Amid this backdrop, officers in states such as New York, Oregon, Iowa and Kentucky took knees while policing ongoing demonstrations, in acts that replicated the protest started by former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Law enforcement leaders in Michigan and Virginia also participated in marches alongside protestors.

Two Des Moines officers took a knee… to pray.
