DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A small group of people gathered in front of the Dayton Safety Building to rally and call attention to the death of John Crawford III.
The group could be heard chanting, “This is what democracy looks like. Show me what democracy looks like. This is what democracy looks like.”
In light of many protest across the nation, organizers say they want to remember the 22-year-old.
Beavercreek Police shot Crawford to death, while responding to a call that a man was waving around a gun at the local Walmart.
Police later learned Crawford was carrying a BB gun.
The group says it hopes the community will come together and bring awareness to racism and police brutality.
