Police Review Finds No Excessive Force Used At Utah Protest

Utah authorities have released an internal police review outlining areas of improvement but found no signs of excessive use of force during a protest that turned physical. The Salt Lake Police Department has released their incident review Thursday saying police officers showed restraint in their response to protesters storming the Chamber of Commerce Building in July despite an officer punching at least one protester. Authorities say 14 people are facing criminal charges as a result of the protest against the Utah Inland Port, a global trade hub planned in Salt Lake City. The report says the protest resulted in damages worth more than $9,200.
