Austin Protestors Show Solidarity With Ferguson, NY Demonstrators
At the Texas Capitol Thursday night, protestors gathered to show solidarity with demonstrators in New York, Ferguson, Missouri and other cities around the nation, demanding police be held accountable in several high-profile deaths at the hands of officers.
The protest comes a day ahead of the arraignment of former Austin Police Detective Charles Kleinert, who shot and killed Larry Jackson, Jr. last year. Jackson was black and was unarmed. Kleinert was indicted on manslaughter charges and is expected to plead not guilty on Friday in a Travis County court.
