VIDEO: Protest against police killings held at federal courthouse


September 15, 2020

On Saturday afternoon, a group of about 100 people gathered outside of the federal courthouse in Reno to protest police killings and to support loved ones of those who’ve been killed by local law enforcement.

“My brother was killed at the Washoe County jail in 2015,” said Annemarie Grant, one of the organizers of the event, about her brother—Thomas Purdy—before turning her megaphone over for others to use to tell their stories to the crowd.

Informational pamphlets were handed out containing a partial list of people killed in fatal police encounters—as well as a list of demands related to accountability and transparency, including reopening investigations into all police killings, drug testing officers following civilian deaths and ending qualified immunity.
