Here is some of that article:

During May and June of 2020, Colorado saw statewide protests in response to the murder of George Floyd by Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin. Unlike the Jan. 6, 2021 attempted coup d’etat in Washington, D.C., protesters were predominantly nonviolent, but the nature of their protest and the size of the protest led to law enforcement applying the same abusive overreach against Black Lives Matter protesters that led to the demonstrations in the first place.

At the end of March 2022, a federal grand jury awarded $14 million in compensatory and punitive damages to 12 people injured by Denver police during those protests. The city and county of Denver released a statement to CNN saying "Unfortunately, Denver Police Department officers and other law enforcement officers responding to assist encountered extreme destructive behavior from some agitators among largely peaceful protestors. We recognize that some mistakes were made."

What happened is that of lot of ordinary people had too much and started to protest.
The establishment (institutionally racist) decided to crush the protests, and destroyed BLM with the media.
And so the racist establishment has prevailed and democratic voices have once again been silenced.
