Protested in Canton, Ohio tonight. We were 100% peaceful – marching, chanting, kneeling. SWAT showed up & sprayed tear gas & shot people with rubber bullets. We ran down alleyways & they followed us. This is insanity, this is wrong, things need to CHANGE!#BlackLivesMatter pic.twitter.com/4mpuXInvyb
