Black Lives Matter Protest In North Sacramento for Joseph Mann

Black Lives Matter protestors stood amongst other community members in solidarity, asking for justice for Jospeh Mann and others killed by police.

Pastor Les Simmons, ACT leader and Board Member, works with the Police Commissions Advisory Board. Simmons was at the protest and said he is not against police just wants change. 

"We nee to meet each other where we are at, understand each other and have some empathy for what each other is feeling right now," Simmons said. 

He wants a conversation to start and non-lethal alternatives to be available to every officer, like bean bag guns and rubber bullets. 

"Let's take it to a whole other level, this is what our community is asking for, let’s go get it, lets be a city that compliments each other," Simmons added.
