On the 15th of December the Hands Up Coalition held a rally in front of the Department of Justice demanding that killer cops be prosecuted and police departments be placed under community control. The mother of Trey Joyner, a DC man shot and killed by US Park Police, spoke about her case and how there has been no justice in the courts for her son or her family. He was killed because of a false report from “an informant” of a man with a gun, he was unarmed. Every 28 hours police kill another African-American in the US, protesters warn that unless this is stopped they will continue to “shut shit down.”
This was the first of what will be a sequence of rallies every Monday at 4PM in front of the Department of Justice (DOJ).
