Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz and Police Chief George Kral issued the following statement today:

“We want to apologize on behalf of the City of Toledo administration, which includes Toledo Police, for all injuries sustained by innocent, peaceful protesters who were hurt because of a very small number of people who chose not to protest peacefully during the rally held downtown on Saturday, May 30. We have reviewed dozens of images and videos of peaceful protesters who were hurt on that day. We both support why the protesters were there that day, and why they have chosen to peacefully march on subsequent days. It is our most sincere hope that we will emerge as a stronger community, in solidarity, dedicated to real reforms that address the longtime barriers that have existed nationwide for communities of color.”
