LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — The Los Angeles Police Department Friday released video captured from body-worn cameras of an incident between police and protesters during demonstrations in the wake of the death of George Floyd.

In the video, an officer can be seen shooting a protester in the groin with a foam projectile during a June 2 demonstration in the Hollywood area.

The protester told the Los Angeles Times that an officer had grabbed a sign reading, “Defund the police,” away from him and a friend and then shoved the friend to the ground.

He said when he went to go help his friend, he felt an intense pain and realized that he had been shot in the groin.

LAPD said it had launched an internal investigation into the officer’s use of force.

      Maybe next time they’ll shoot your balls off, but you probably don’t have any.

    That’s why we have two, just in case! That’s what I call good police work, no one died or got seriously injured. Considering that Los Angeles has a social distance order these police officers did everything they could to stay safe and protect each other.

    So??? I’d say that was mighty fine job of using non-lethal force! Why does the media always see things through the BLM’s eye? Virtual signaling? Dang liberals…..
