Some families who had a loved one killed by a police officer spoke at the rally including the father of Jordan Edwards.

Edwards, 15, was shot to death by a Balch Springs officer in April as he and friends left a party.

“At night I stay up late, two or three in the morning, check on my boys and my familly,” said Odell Edwards. “Eight or nine in the morning, I get no rest. So hard. I’m going to miss Jordan. I’m going to miss him a lot.”

The rally also included a call to protect immigrants from the bill that bans “sanctuary cities” in Texas and also to protect the rights of the LGBT community.

  1. Nothing worse than bad cops. How can we minorities protect ourselves from the racism, misogynistic, sexism, xenophobia, being treated like a second class citizen, etc. etc. that has be going on for generations? Some minorities are being afraid to voice their opinion fearing retribution. But that is the silence that allows fascism to rise. As one who celebrates and strives for diversity, individual freedom, equal opportunity, and respect for all lifestyles. Integrity is our only true currency. Never give up supporting each other., and fighting for what is right.
