LANSING, MI (WILX) -- The Lansing Residents United chapter of Lansing held a peaceful demonstration at Lansing City Hall on Monday.

The demonstration was held to demand change in policy concerning police brutality in Lansing after a video was released showing officers repeatedly striking a woman in a police car who was resisting arrest.

Tahsha Hardeman, an acting volunteer liaison for Lansing Residents United and Action of Greater Lansing, asked News 10 to be at the demonstration to ensure the group would not be denied or challenged while acting within their rights, and to ensure that the city can be held accountable for all actions taken.

The demonstration took place at 3 p.m. outside Lansing City Hall.
