SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – More than 100 people gathered in front of Sacramento County Jail in downtown with signs that read “Film the Police” and “Don’t Shoot.”
Many said they came to rally against police brutality – in solidarity with the protests of Ferguson, Missouri – and bring an end to what they call unlawful shootings of innocent people.
The Ferguson protests have now reached as far as Sacramento after 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot and killed in Missouri more than a week ago. But protestors here say this rally is about more than this one shooting.
“It’s not just about one person, one father, one child, one cousin, one son – it’s about all of them. We are Michael Brown,” said protestor Bob Saunders.
Organizers say there will be a national day of protest on October 22.
