Over 2,000 people of all ages and races and beliefs gathered in Civic Center Park for Tuesday evening’s Kneel For Nine. It was well spirited and respectful and honorable.
The event’s name symbolically refers to the nearly nine minutes that police officer David Chauvin kneeled on the neck of George Floyd on May 23. A variety of chants rang out in unison with each passing minute.
The Kenosha Police Department assisted the departing crowd, some marching through downtown Kenosha with squad cars following up.
