The only way this changes is with powerful, repeated protests.

Even in Kosovo we would have gotten so much shit if something like that would have happened. And that was an actual Peacekeeping zone, with actual snipers and rogue mortar teams firing indiscriminately on civilians for just being in neighbourhoods with the wrong ethnicity.
You can't trust the Liir. Never trust someone that smiles all the time.

The US police department has been groomed to think that every civilian is a potential deadly threat (those of certain ethnicities even more so).

And on top of that, there is an elected president throwing out nudges to the police to "not be too nice" to suspects and not to worry about injuring suspects in custody.
If you want a different perspective, stand on your head.
