Black Lives Matter activists demand investigation of police killings of Black women, project images on DOJ’s walls

On evening of the 21st of May, Black Lives Matter activists gathered at the Department of Justice to demand investigations into police murders of Black women both Cisgendered and Transgendered. A projector was set up, showing scenes of some of the police incidents that led to the deaths of Black women at the hands of police on the walls of the Department of Justice.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch was called out for not giving the same priority to investigating police murder of Black women as to police murder of Black men. She was further criticized for not giving investigations of police murder of Black Trans women the same priority as the also crucial campaign against those bigoted “bathroom bills” being pushed in GOP states.
