    CHICAGO — People protesting police brutality recently won’t be prosecuted if they faced charges for minor crimes, the State’s Attorney’s Office announced Tuesday. The office will not prosecute peaceful protesters, according to a new policy. The policy will apply to thousands of people arrested for things like violating the curfew or disorderly conduct in Chicago, though it excludes people who “intentionally cause[d] harm or damage.” Police made more than 3,000 arrests in late May and early June, when there was widespread protesting after Minneapolis Police officers killed a Black man, George Floyd. But many of the arrests were for non-violent crimes or weren’t related to looting and vandalism that was seen at the same time. People arrested for non-violent crimes — including unlawful gathering, criminal trespass to state-supported land, disorderly conduct, public demonstration and curfew violations — will have charges dismissed, according to a press release from the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office.
