Videos of Lee monument tear-gassing incident to be released to Library of Virginia as part of settlement
RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond will be required to turn over to the Library of Virginia all police footage, recordings, officer lists and other materials related to the Lee monument tear-gassing incident two years ago.
The Library of Virginia will then be tasked with making those materials public.
As part of the settlement, the city also agreed to post a retraction about a tweet made in regards to the tear-gassing.
The settlement was reached in February with six protesters who were tear-gassed on June 1, 2020, but the terms were not announced until Friday.
