George Floyd

Weeks after the death of George Floyd, state lawmakers have reached agreement on several measures aimed at reducing police brutality.

Erie officials on Monday said they are imposing a three-day suspension on a city police officer who was captured on video kicking a woman during a protest in the wake of the George Floyd killing.

Hundreds gathered on a hot Saturday afternoon at Bethlehem City Hall for a vigil for George Floyd. It was jointly sponsored by the NAACP’s of Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton.

Erie’s mayor said Monday that city officials identified the police officer seen on video striking a protester over the weekend, but they declined to publicly name him.

Almost 1,000 people marched in Allentown Saturday evening to protest police injustice. While participants said they are angry with how people of color are treated, they wanted to protest peacefully.
