Citizens of Hearne, Texas gathered today for a peaceful protest led by Quanell X, the leader of the New Black Panther Party out of Houston, Texas.
The Rally began early with residents gathering outside a local church three blocks from the Hearne Police Department. After a prayer for a peaceful demonstration, Quanell X addressed the citizens calling for justice for the officer-involved shooting which took place this past Tuesday.
"We are not a hate group, this is not about race, this is about human beings and the life of Pearlie Golden who was taken from this world too soon," said Quanell X. "We are tiered and we are going to take a stand for what is right, we have go to stop this injustice now."
