Denver Police Chief Orders Stand Down as Protesters Vandalize Memorial to Fallen Officers

DENVER (AP) — Denver Police Chief Robert White on Sunday defended his policy ordering police not to interfere with protesters, saying he found it “disgusting” that they vandalized a memorial for fallen police officers while officers had to stand by and watch, but he said their restraint was necessary to protect the community.

Protesters threw red paint on the memorial outside the department’s headquarters Saturday during a march against police brutality.

Officers and the city’s police union were upset after they were told not to interfere.
