MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) - Dozens of people marched Friday afternoon in memory of Sammie Davis Jr. while calling for justice for Junebug and citing issues with the Macon police department.
The group marched from Tattnall Square park to Macon City Hall. They were singing, chanting, and carrying signs. The coordinator of the march says this is the community's way to show they won't tolerate what they call police corruption.
"We've been dealing with situations in our community for a long time and the people have been crying out about injustice," Daryl Jackson said. "Its sad that it took Sammie Davis' death to shed light on other issues with law enforcement in our community."
Jackson disagrees with the district attorney's decision to not charge MPD officer Clayton Sutton. He calls it a slap in the community's face and believes it's a cover up. Jackson says he'll continue marching until justice is served.
