Cell phone video uploaded to YouTube yesterday shows a group of Cleveland protesters chanting the chorus to rapper Kendrick Lamar's single "Alright."
The protest took place outside of a Movement for Black Lives conference at Cleveland State University on Sunday.
After a 14-year-old boy aboard a bus was arrested under suspicion of public intoxication, a crowd of people at the conference refused to allow a police cruiser carrying the boy leave, ABC5 reported.
The video's caption reads:
Today after the ending of the convening as everyone was walking down the street CPD arrested a 14 yr old. While everyone was demanding his release an officer pepper sprayed the crowd and further escalated the situation. In unity and solidarity everyone was demanding that he be released, and we stayed and protested until they released him!
