Friday, August 29th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– A peaceful protest in Wilmington serves as an effort to remember those killed after altercations with police.

On the anniversary of the, “I have a dream,” speech around fifty people showed up to march and rally in memory of those who are gone.

Taking their message to the street in the hot sun chanting, “no justice, no peace.”

The march was in hopes of getting out the message that some in the community don’t feel justice was served after law enforcement was cleared of any wrongdoing in the deaths of four different people. Those people were killed during officer involved use of force incidents.

“Its not a race thing,” said Jamie Stokely, attending the rally with her 6-year-old son, “It ain’t about race. It’s about justice.”

For their part the police department says they have had meetings with groups of all kinds, and are willing to listen to anyone who has concerns.

A spokesperson for the department says they plan to implement some of the changes suggested in these meetings.
Those changes will be announced at next week’s City Council workshop.
