July 31 "PLEASE DONT SHOOT ME" EMERGENCY PROTEST! - Hosted by Justice For Thurman Blevins Jr. (@Justice For Thurman Blevins Jr.) 

From Justice for Thurman Blevins Facebook Page:

Ryan Kelly and Justin Schmidt were not afraid of Thurman Blevins on the day of June 23th of 2018. Thurman Blevins begged for his life not to be taken by the Minneapolis Police Department.

Justin Schmidt is in fact the instructor of the fear-based training for the Minneapolis Police Department, meaning - he was never afraid when he encountered Thurman Blevins that day on the corner, in front of his girlfriend and her child.

Thurman Blevins was shot while running for his life in his back with shots followed by Ryan Kelly to his face causing him to lose an eye. [The question is;] 'How are you afraid if he is already on the ground?' The audio concluded these officers never looked at Thurman as a regular human being but a (mother f******). They were ready to kill Thurman Blevins and Blevins was nothing but a practice TARGET for Justin Schmidt and Ryan Kelly.

In the United States of America we have a second amendment of the right to bear arms. Thurman posed no threat to [warrant being] viciously gun downed. These officers deserve to be put in jail and prosecuted to the fullest degree of the law and put on unpaid administrative leave WITHOUT pay and FIRED from the Minneapolis Police Department.
