From Deutschlandfunk Kultur:

Police officers take the protest personally and therefore consider their actions to be justified, believes Emily Mooney, a legal expert at the “R Street” think tank. Police officers do not see themselves as Derek Chauvin or the three other police officers who were involved in George Floyd’s death.

Emily Money fears that this could lead to an even more aggressive handling of journalists. From the point of view of the police officers, they were all shoved together by the media because of the actions of a few. They don’t see that there is a systemic problem, believes Emily Mooney, who describes herself as conservative.
