Roxbury Protest Against Police Brutality

ROXBURY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) -- Demonstrators gathered on Saturday for a peaceful protest in Roxbury against police brutality.

There have been a number of recent police-involved deaths, and ralliers are demanding accountability from the police.

This protest is one of many, in Massachusetts as well as the rest of the country, being held this week.

Crowds have gathered in Brooklyn Center, following a former police officer fatally shooting Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man, during a traffic stop.

In Chicago, 13-year-old Adam Toledo was shot and killed. Authorities released new body-cam footage that shows the officer firing a single-shot at Toledo.

In addition, Minneapolis is bracing for former police officer Derek Chauvin's murder trial to give closing arguments on Monday.

Joe Tache from the Party of Social Liberation said, "What we need is accountability from the police department, from our Congress, from our Senators, from City Hall. You are supposed to make our streets safer and you are contributing to the problem."
