The reduction in murders of black people by police following BLM protests demonstrates the effectiveness of the BLM protest strategy.

Since Black Lives Matter protests gained national prominence following the 2014 police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., the movement has spread to hundreds of cities and towns across the U.S. Now a new study shows police homicides have significantly decreased in most cities where such protests occurred.

US police are very brutal during the BLM protests and many of them enjoy using bbrutal violence:

The US police also lie about their brutality. This is just one incident of pack animal behavior by US police:

"Video footage showed a slow-moving SUV being surrounded by police. Officers with batons surrounded the vehicle, broke its windows, pulled its driver and a passenger, Rickia Young and her teenage nephew, from the car, threw them onto the ground, and then pulled Young's 2-year-old son from the backseat. Young had to be taken to the hospital for injuries sustained in the arrest and was later released without charges. The Fraternal Order of Police posted a photo of a policewoman holding Young's son to Twitter and Facebook, claiming that the child had been found wandering the streets and that they were protecting him. The posts were later deleted.[129] "

The brutality of the police in this incident is astonishing. The women was badly beaten by the police without any cause.
