LANSING, Mich. — Lansing Residents United is fighting back against police brutality by leading an educational event focused on deescalation and why a certain police technique should not be used anymore.

The event is in response to video of a Lansing police officer hitting a teenage girl during an arrest this month.

The two officers involved in the incident received a suspension and probation.

The event is from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Capital Area District Library in downtown Lansing.
