Vigil at Bank Square, downtown Little Falls, intersection of Hwy 27 (Broadway Ave.) and First Street (where we met all years past) at 1 pm-2 pm.
Brainerd Area Coalition for Peace (BACP) held a vigil against police brutality in solidarity with national protests against police brutality, including a major demonstration in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, December 13.
The vigil demanded an end to police brutality and racial profiling and that police officers who commit police brutality be held legally accountable. The vigil opposed the militarization of the police force and protested disparities in justice based on class, race, and ethnicity.
The vigil also supported strong reforms to the criminal justice system against police brutality, racial profiling, harsh prison sentences for non-violent offenses, solitary confinement, and institutional bias in the justice system based on class, race, and ethnicity. The vigil supported justice for police brutality victims.
