OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Several protestors across the nation are coming together after the Memphis Police Department released bodycam footage of the fatal beating of Tyre Nichols by officers at the department.
On Sunday, Oklahoma City and surrounding communities came together for a forum at the Tower Theatre in Uptown.
Community members used this opportunity to express their concerns to local law enforcement leaders.
“We have people willing to sit down and discuss the matter,” said Marilyn Luper-Hildreth, civil rights leader.
Chiefs and representatives from the Oklahoma City, Edmond, Moore, Midwest City police departments along with the Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office were there to listen and answer questions from the community.
“If I’m someone who feels as if an officer acted unprofessionally, and I want to take this complaint, how do we file it? How do we do it and then how do we know that we will be taken seriously?… How are we assured that our voices will be heard? How are we ensured that we’ll see justice?” said Jabee, civil rights leader and director of LIVE FREE in Oklahoma City.
