RALLY AND PRESS CONFERENCE: JUSTICE FOR FONG LEE!

The family of Fong Lee, the young man who was murdered by disgraced Minneapolis police officer Jason Andersen, will hold a rally and press conference tomorrow. You'll recall that Fong Lee, 19, was shot eight times as he ran away from Andersen after Anderson knocked him off his bicycle. Fong Lee was unarmed but a weapon that had been in MPD custody right up to the time of the incident magically appeared on the scene and was used to justify the shooting. So far, the family has been denied justice by the courts but during the rally they will announce that they have hired a new attorney and are pursuing next steps. This event will take place at the site of Fong Lee's killing. It is vital that we support this family in their efforts to hold police accountable for killing their son.
