US family calls for ‘rally for justice’ after white officer kills Black man
TRT World says The death of an unarmed African-American man shot by an off-duty white police officer under mysterious circumstances has fuelled outrage in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where relatives of the victim are calling for protests in the US state.
Prominent rights lawyer Benjamin Crump and the family of Jason Walker have scheduled a “rally for justice” at 8:00 pm (0100 GMT) in the city.
Small clusters of residents have already marched this week in Fayetteville to demand the arrest of officer Jeffrey Hash, in a case that has revived debate over whether police use excessive force in the United States, particularly against minorities.
Hash, employed by the city since 2005, was off duty when the shooting occurred on Saturday afternoon.
