BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) – Multiple civil rights organizations from Louisiana are gathering on October 7 at the State Capitol to protest.
The protest is in response to the death of Ronald Greene.
Greene died after crashing his vehicle into a tree following a high-speed chase in rural northern Louisiana, but Greene’s family alleges troopers used excessive force and “brutalized” him while taking him into custody.
The NAACP, The Village 337, civil rights attorneys and state representatives are joining Greene’s family at the State Capitol.
The protest is scheduled to begin at 3:30 p.m.
