Ryan Ao was trying to get to his car in downtown Portland, Oregon, recently, when he saw a peaceful protest was happening. He heard a lot of noise and went to investigate. He captured an inspiring moment on camera as Portland police took a knee with protesters. Some of the protesters got up to shake hands and high-five officers.
Ao said, "I'm hearing a lot of cheering and all the sudden I see some people hugging a police officer, and I'm like, 'What?" So I come running down here to document this and I was just blown away. All kinds of protesters were hugging police officers who took a knee with them."
