The shooting, the letter and the protest

Protesters gathered outside the Louisville Metro Police Department in response to the open letter in the Courier-Journal by Sgt. Dave Mutchler, president of the River City FOP Lodge 614, following the June 13 shooting death of Sudanese immigrant Deng Manyoun by LMPD Officer Nathan Blanford. A “Face-To-Face” community forum followed that evening at 4th Street United Methodist Church in Old Louisville. See the story and photos, FOP Action Protest
