ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — More than 50 demonstrators gathered in Downtown Albuquerque to protest against police brutality Saturday.
"We're just hoping to spread the message and spread the word that we're ready for change and we're ready to see a lot of changes, and we want to see the police on our side. We want to see police as not something the people fear," said one protestor. "We want to see police as someone we can get along with."
The protestors that KOB 4 spoke with said it was important that everything remained peaceful.
Police said they made two arrests in connection to vandalism that displayed anti-police graffiti and obscenities. According to the criminal complaint, the suspects were found with six cans of spray paint and a large sharpie.
The two were charged with criminal damage to property.
APD posted their response to the protest on Facebook:
