Officer Nicholas Jovanovich now faces firing as a result of the 2020 incident, in which he knocked out an activist’s tooth and seized her cell phone.

Activists say the pair’s public conversation about “trust and distrust” shows the problems with assuming marginalized people have progressive values.
Neither of the off-duty officers involved in the shooting or the dispute that preceded it were in full uniform, as police have claimed.
