⚠️Language warning ⚠️ protestors are getting more vocal. There’s been a lot of taunting. Now chanting the slur we’ve seen and heard a lot this year. pic.twitter.com/IdDRgpKh0e— Jessika Eidson KMTV (@JessikaEidsonTV) November 22, 2020
Kiara Williams was interviewed by Jessika Eidson about her experience during Friday night's protests. Williams said she was arrested Friday night.
Jessika Eidson is downtown and monitoring the demonstration as it develops. She estimates that there are about 50 people at the protest Saturday night.
@3NewsNowOmaha I’m at the second night of protests outside the Omaha Police Headquarters. @WeAreProBLAC is saying they are protesting because they want OPD to release body camera footage from Thursday night when a 35-year-old black man was fatally shot during a traffic stop. pic.twitter.com/AU8y3WO1or— Jessika Eidson KMTV (@JessikaEidsonTV) November 22, 2020
The group plans to protest outside the Omaha Police Department beginning at 6 p.m. They're looking for body-camera footage from the incident to be released.
The body-cam footage is something Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said can't be released by Omaha Police right now.
Stothert has said a grand jury will review the officer-involved shooting. The grand jury could be delayed due to COVID-19, as many investigations are on hold or backlogged.
Kenneth Jones, 35, died in the officer-involved shooting on Thursday night near 27th and Harrison. Jones was shot during a struggle that ensued after what was initially a routine traffic stop. He later died at Nebraska Med.
The two officers involved are on paid administrative leave.
The first round of protests on Friday resulted in a handful of arrests.
