In Portland, Oregon, police deployed pepper spray against Black Lives Matter activists Wednesday, amid protests at City Hall during a vote over a controversial new police contract, which activists say gives police officers too much power during investigations over police brutality. At least 10 people were arrested as the activists repeatedly disrupted the vote and shut down streets around City Hall. An earlier version of the contract would have allowed police officers to review body camera footage before writing reports on all incidents, except involving fatal shootings. The City Council voted to approve the contract 3-1.
