YANI HENDERSON: Because the people are getting tired of this type of thing, you know. The community getting tired of just killing somebody and going home to eat lunch. That's not going to work no more. They going to have to stop that.

- A young black man just finding his life that you would never understand. You would never understand just starting his life. With a two-year-old. Getting murdered. For what? He should be here today

YANI HENDERSON: A horrible thing, man. And it's just that even after just barely a year after George Floyd gets killed, you know. And that's not cool. Now its a 20-year-old young man dead. You know, he had 30, 40 more years to live and got cut down short. And that's not cool.

JAYLANI HUSSEIN: Well the Minnesota community and probably the entire country has been just traumatized with the Chauvin trial. Fundamentally nothing has changed in the state of Minnesota and perhaps across this country around police accountability. And that-- we were on a ticking time bomb where there was going to be another killing. And unfortunately, it happened in Brooklyn Center.

So as community leaders today we asked for a determination of the police officer and charges to be brought up against her. To also the police chief who was last night with the city manager, decided to engage peaceful protesters right out here. And he entered a very dangerous situation, especially for the neighborhood here, apartment buildings by shooting at them. Bombs and firebombs among other things, including tear gas and other chemicals so adding insult to injury from what took place last night. Taking a life of two-year-old clearly, who was not a threat to anyone.

TAVEN HILL: This ain't fear, this is power. This ain't racist, this is power. These people are not laying down. And I'm not saying that because the fight is what we want because that's not what we want. But they're leaving us no choice. We are tired. We're tired of not being heard. We're tired of being walked over. And then we get penalized for complaining, for speaking out.

[DRUMMING]

TAVEN HILL: We're not taking it no more. We're going to be out here all night. They set a curfew at 7 o'clock because they knew it was coming back at 7 o'clock. If it's a fight that they want then that's what they're going to get.

[EXPLOSIONS]

TAVEN HILL: I'm tired of it. We tired of it. It's going to be over 1,000 people here tonight to say the same exact thing that I'm saying. We're tired.
