As CBS 2’s Derrick Blakley reports, protesters demanded truly independent oversight of police.
Marching directly from Palm Sunday Mass at St. Agatha Church, about 50 demonstrators sang their way right into the Ogden District Station.
“As children are accountable and people of faith are accountable, then our police need to be accountable for their behavior,” said St. Agatha’s parishioner Sharaya Tindal.
At the Grand Central District, cops erected barricades to keep demonstrators outside, but the message was the same: a demand for a new agency to investigate shootings by police.
