No arrests reported on sixth night of protests in Downtown Omaha

Posted at 6:54 AM, Jun 04, 2020

Protesters hit Omaha streets for a sixth day, calling for justice after George Floyd died while in police custody in Minneapolis. Wednesday night, they filled the downtown area.

The number of protesters has gone from thousands, to hundreds, to dozens. Still, those we spoke to say they plan to keep showing up to make their voices heard.

"For years this has been going on, and like the millennials are truly trying to make a difference and change," said protestor Cristina Luckey. "All of us coming together, no matter what skin color, race, gender - you're coming together trying to make a change for equality in justice for all the people we've lost - and all the people still here."

For the second night in a row, police have not reported any arrests.
