Cops in Aurora, Colorado marched in like a military unit to forcibly stop — not to mention pepper spray — peaceful protesters who were watching a violin performance to honor Elijah McClain.

This went down Saturday in City Center Park, where a musical vigil had been planned to pay respects to Elijah — who died while in custody of Aurora Police Department last year — which was incredibly symbolic.

Late Elijah played Violin himself when he was alive…

The video Clip captured by a vigilant bystander, you can see the shocking juxtaposition play out live on camera.

In the video, you hear the violinists — some of whom are said to have been underage — beautifully playing in unison, and the next minute … cops are storming the place.

The woman recording can be heard — along with others — openly yelling “No!” at what’s about to happen next … cops in aurora forcefully pushing the protesters out of the park, while shutting down the performance.

Pepper spray started getting dispersed at one point too.

A reporter on the ground captured an even more surreal moment … as cops were literally pushing up against protesters, a violinist on stage started playing soothing melodies.

The protesters stood their ground as long as they could — several even formed a human barrier around the violinists to protect them from the police.

Communal chants also erupted …  with phrases like, “Why are you in riot gear? I don’t see no riot here!”

Eventually, the protesters were forced to the parking lot … but they didn’t let that ruin the get-together. Some violinists followed along and continued on the pavement.

The protesters even broke out in song, singing “Lean On Me” … in what proved to be a powerful statement in response to the brutality they’d just gone through, for no reason at all.

They claimed the crowd was getting unruly and some were even arming themselves and hurling projectiles at the squad. In the end … the police say only 3 people were arrested for violating lawful orders after warnings were given.

It’s unclear why cops just didn’t stand back … this was almost entirely a peaceful protest and especially given what police did to Elijah, they could have just watched from a distance.
