At a town hall meeting Monday Night Dallas Police Chief Eddie Garcia addressed racially motivated shootings and told citizens of the Korean business community that he was, “confident [the investigation was] moving in the right direction.”
A victim of the shooting (and store owner) appeared at the forum and her translator said she was still fearful because the shooter had not been apprehended. She also shared information/evidence with the Chief. Councilman Omar Narvaez echoedChief Garcia’s sentiments as he talked about a dedicated Dallas Police Department and City Council. He added that as someone who constantly deals with “hate” the multiple racially-targeted shootings were very disturbing.
Simultaneously on Black Star Network’s Roland Martin Unfiltered, the discussion focused on the mass shooting in a Buffalo, NY grocery store on Saturday morning. An emotional vigil was held on Sunday and during the show, the discussion focused on the racist shooter who was assured by officials that he would get a fair trial and was “innocent until proven guilty.”
