"Today we marched two coffins into Dallas stadium led by local clergy members."
The caskets were symbolic of the two deaths experienced by black victims of police brutality— “first they kill the body; then they kill your name.” We honored the memories of #OshaeTerry killed by Arlington PD and #BothamJean killed by Dallas PD. Both brothers, unarmed, in their twenties, killed in the last two weeks."
"We demanded the officers involved be charged with murder, be fired, that PDs end the practice of releasing evidence meant to incriminate the victims of police brutality and media cease being complicit in the practice."
"A faction of our group broke off and blocked traffic. Our goal was to be as disruptive as DPD and local media was to the memory of #BothamJean. 9 brave protesters were arrested. Next Generation Action Network has arranged for their bond and we applaud their activism. We are in this together. #Justiceforall " ~ Lee Merritt,Esq
