DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dozens of people gathered at Courthouse Square Saturday as part of a rally for justice in the John Crawford III case. The rally–organized by three college students–comes less than a week before the two-year anniversary of Crawford’s death.
Many of the people we spoke with say they came out because they we want to see John Crawford III get the justice he deserves.
“I like to take action and get things done so I can’t sit around,” Keila Hall said. “That’s why we have these events.”
Hall says she’s calling for change in the John Crawford III case.
Crawford was shot and killed by a Beavercreek Police officer inside the Beavercreek Walmart in August 2014 after picking up a BB gun off the shelf. Police say he refused to drop it.
