Protestors Demand Video Of Grand Rapids Police Shooting That Kill Patrick Lyoya

The Royal Black Panther Party Grand Rapids organized the march to the commission’s meeting at City Hall. Protesters chanted “Black lives matter,” “No justice, no peace” and “Say his name: Patrick” as they streamed into City Hall, The Grand Rapids Press reported.
