FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - Quinn L'Herureax is one of many protesters who did not join the Unity Walk. Instead, he joined others in blocking the corner of Clinton and Main streets as marchers returned.
"Unionizing with the police has never worked. You've never seen King do it. You've never seen the Black Panthers do it, you never saw Angela Davis do it, you've never seen Malcolm X do it. Why? Because that is a show of complicitness. That is a show of acceptance of their behavior. I will never accept their violence," L’Herureax said.
L'Herureax said it's nothing but a publicity stunt just days after police launched tear gas at them.
"This woman right here was shot by police officers while peacefully protesting and what did they do? Walk arm and arm with black folks across the Martin Luther King Bridge," he added.
Marisol Leticia is deaf and attended the protests during the weekend.
She's the woman L'Herureax is referring to.
Leticia said she was injured by police when tear gas was used, and said all of this is happening before any healing could really begin.
"It's important. I deserve an apology," Leticia said.
