BLM marches on FOP for Atatiana Jefferson after rally at MPD

On the 28th of October, Black Lives Matter activists rallied at MPD's headquarters, then marched on the headquarters of the Fraternal Order of Police. They were demanding justice for Atatiana Jefferson and for all other Black women murdered by police.

Atatiana Koquice Jefferson was killed by Officer Aaron Dean of the Ft Worth, Texas police department on Oct 12, 2019 in her own home. In a very rare development, the Fraternal Order of Police was somehow unable to prevent him from being forced to resign and submit to arrest for murder. It is an open question whether it will ever be possible to convict a white cop for this.

Here in DC and around the US, when a cop kills someone, the usual procedure is they call the FOP first, then (maybe) an ambulance. Most of the time killer cops walk and even keep walking their beats, and the FOP is with them every step of the way to protect them from justice.
