His comments relating to “the Black Church” at the protest were inspired by a much-forwarded letter to the editor/online essay by Hill District resident Tracey M.

On May 28th, 2011, activists of the Alliance for Police Accountability, BPEP, 1Hood, members of local churches, and others gathered with 150 others to attach to the Allegheny Courthouse a People’s Indictment against the three officers that beat Jordan Miles.
This was the fourth consecutive protest in four weeks.
