NSW police won’t conduct any further investigation into the early June incident after a Black Lives Matter protest at Central station when about 40-60 protesters were kettled in the station and hit with capsicum spray, but after reviewing the bodycam footage, NSW police has told those who complained that there would be no further internal investigation.
