DENVER (AP) — Sgt. Keith Wrede, a Colorado Springs police officer disciplined for saying “Kill them all” during a livestream of a racial injustice protest in June 2020 is one of two officers accused in a federal lawsuit of using excessive force on a woman who participated in a protest earlier that month.

In the lawsuit filed Wednesday against the officers and city, Celia Palmer said Wrede ambushed her and a friend from behind during the June 2, 2020, protest after police ordered protesters to disperse from near police department headquarters.

After leaving the demonstration, Palmer and her friend stopped to watch an officer harass a young Black man and were hit by pepper spray, leading them to walk away quickly, the lawsuit said. Wrede then tackled them without warning and slammed Palmer to the ground, causing her head to bounce off the pavement, according to the lawsuit.
