SILVER SPRING, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - At least 50 protesters called for more accountability from Montgomery County Police after a video released Thursday showed a white officer using the N-word in her interaction with black men at a Silver Spring McDonald's.
The group was led by the Silver Spring Justice Coalition and marched from the White Oak Library to the county's third district police station.
In a news conference at the station, the group demanded to see body-camera video from every officer on the scene of the incident. They also demanded the trespass warnings given to the men detained be dropped.
Speakers shared stories of encounters they have had with Montgomery County Police in which they felt they were racially profiled or in which officers acted improperly.
The police department has called the officer's use of the slur "disturbing" and said the actions of all the officers in the video are under investigation.
