Montgomery County Council members are asking police to release “all body camera footage” from the May 9 incident in which a white county police officer is heard using a racial slur when confronting a group of black men outside a McDonald’s in White Oak.
At least 50 protesters chanted and marched to a Montgomery County police station in Silver Spring, Maryland, and rallied outside. The demonstration was a response to videos recorded last week, of a white officer using a racial slur.

In a statement, Montgomery County police said that the comments in the video clip are “disturbing and contrary to our department’s values and our overarching mission to fairly and impartially serve our community.”
