Tallahassee Dream Defenders and community members demand justice for Jeremy “Jed” Lett through the firing of the police officer David Stith who killed 28 year old, Jeremy Lett.
On February 25, 2015, Tallahassee community members and students will be coming together to rally against police terror and misconduct . This is part of a nationwide initiative to curb police violence happening in our own cities.
On February 3rd, 2015, a young man by the name of Jeremy “Jed” Lett was killed from multiple gun shots by off duty police David Stith outside Shadow Ridge Apartments . The officer has been placed on administrative leave with pay. The officer apparently felt that Lett looked like a robbery suspect . The Tallahassee community is saddened by the loss of another one of its black youth, and outraged for the reason why an officer decided to shoot at this innocent and unarmed man .
Community members and students are coming together this Wednesday to show their support for Jeremy Lett and all victims of police violence as they push for the cop(s) to get fired. Protesters will also be remembering those who have lost their lives due to police brutality and racist vigilantism in the state of Florida, Tallahassee and the US nationally.
The rally will be held at 1:30 pm at Leon County Court House at Leon County Courthouse , 301 South Monroe St.
