The vast, sweeping changes now covering America have impacted how the public views one of the most contentious issues sports has seen in decades: the right of athletes to protest.
Christopher: Outraged protesters smashed the windows of a Utah government building and smeared red paint to mimic blood after two officers who fatally shot a 22-year-old 34 times in the back as he ran away escaped charges because the killing was justified under state law. One police officer was injured and two residents were arrested late Thursday night in Salt Lake City after DA Sim Gill announced officers Neil Iversen and Kevin Fortuna would not face charges in the death of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal. The decision was an irredeemable blow to community members and activists who for weeks gathered outside the Salt Lake County District Attorney's office to demand a full investigative report into Palacios-Carbajal's death. Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal was gunned down by officers Iversen and Fortuna outside Utah Village Motel in the early hours of May 23 after they responded to reports of a suspect 'making threats with a weapon'. When's the last time you heard about civil unrest in Utah? 1800s what is up ? Time is up
