“Coloradans are better than this,” Gov. Jared Polis said, noting he was “shocked” by the footage.

Protests in Denver over the death of George Floyd, a Black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis, grew violent on Thursday after a driver appeared to target a demonstrator with their car and an unknown person fired a gun several times near those gathered outside the Colorado Capitol.

No one was injured in the shooting, but Annabel Escobar, a Denver resident at the protest, uploaded a video on Thursday afternoon of demonstrators walking toward the Statehouse after reports of the gunshots subsided. During a tense moment, a man can be seen jumping on the hood of a moving car, which then speeds away with him on the vehicle. The driver then appears to swerve toward the man after he falls off the car, then speeds away.

A link to the video, which is disturbing, can be found on Twitter.

Escobar told The Washington Post she spoke with the man and said he was not seriously injured. She said the police had been notified, but it’s unclear if they had found the driver.

2. Shocked!? Stop holding people to standards that police don't hold themselves to.

The action is the greater problem. Not the reaction. The reaction would never have happened if not for the action. The action is the ONLY shocking thing here.
