Published March 13th

Just one day following a mass protest that resulted in Donald Trump's rally in Chicago being canceled, the attention is now turned on a rally in Kansas City where police sprayed pepper spray into the crowd of protestors last night (March 12).

The Kansas City Police Department issued a statement via Twitter saying, “We had to use pepper spray 2 times outside Trump rally and arrested 2 people who refused to follow law. Majority of people exercised their rights peacefully. Thank you for that, #KC.”

“I’m just very thankful I didn’t get the brunt of it I know some people had to have,” journalist Josh Helmuth recalled to U.S. Uncut. “Again, not sure what happened, but we’re gonna try to get out of this area. They didn’t care if you were on the sidewalk or on the street, they sprayed everyone down a long radius.”
