Protesters rally against the Board of Civilian Police Merits

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Dozens of people rallied in the state’s capitol to show their feelings on a decision that dealt with a deadly officer-involved shooting.

The Board of Civilian Police Merits let officers that were involved in the shooting of Aaron Bailey continue to be employed by the state.

Aaron Bailey, 45, was an unarmed black man who was killed by gunshot in 2017 by an officer.

The board said they are following protocol by allowing the officers to remain on the force.

"The system is broken at every level around race. It is broken at the courts.” Stephen Carlsen said, the Dean of Christ Church Cathedral.
