Police Intimidation, Harassment Are Attempts to ‘Silence First Amendment Rights,’ Protester Says

Protestors in Omaha believe that police have shown a clear pattern of targeted intimidation and harassment during recent demonstrations, part of the basis of a lawsuit filed against the city by the ACLU of Nebraska.
