Minneapolis, MN - 50 gathered at City Hall to demand justice for Thurman Blevins, an African American man killed two weeks ago by Minneapolis police, with multiple shots to the back. Family members led a 2.5-mile march that passed through the plaza at Target Field. Hundreds of baseball fans witnessed the march, some joining in the chants. Protesters want an independent investigation of the killing, the firing and prosecution of killer cops Justin Schmidt and Ryan Kelly, and community control of the police.
