Social justice group protests outside City Hall

Concerned Citizens for Justice protest "police terrorism," call for dismantling of "entire system of policing"

CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) — Local social justice organization Concerned Citizens for Justice rallied outside Chattanooga City Hall Tuesday night.

They’re furious about the death of Tyre Nichols and what they call “police terrorism.”

The group posted Sunday on social media that, quote, “the entire system of policing must be completely dismantled and abolished altogether.”

They also stated that, quote, “government officials and police chiefs across Tennessee continue to hide behind falsified narratives of ‘community support and protection.'”

Chattanooga Mayor Tim Kelly and Police Chief Celeste Murphy were also called out online for quote celebrating “weak police reforms” while some have lost “loved ones to police violence at the hands of C-P-D” and the “conditions within Silverdale Community Center.”
