Protestors gathered in Philadelphia’s Chinatown Saturday in support of Peter Liang, a former police officer whom was convicted of manslaughter for shooting an unarmed black man in Brooklyn.
Liang was fired after his conviction.
A group who calls themselves the ‘ Coalition of Justice for Liang ‘ staged rallies from Boston to Los Angeles, it is said about 100,000 people took part in 30 cities across America.
Supporters believe officials punished Liang more so because of the overwhelming number of shootings around the US involving men, predominantly black, and unarmed by law enforcement.
Liang’s partner, Shaun Landau, was also fired by the New York Police Department shortly after Liang was found guilty.
