In the video: Protesters marching in St Paul Rondo Days parade demand justice in Minneapolis police shooting of Terrance Franklin. Franklin, 22, was killed in May after being pursued by police chasing a burglary suspect.

Story: Three months after the controversial police shooting of 22-year-old Terrance Franklin in a South Minneapolis basement, community demands for a complete investigation and full public accounting continue to rise, just as authorities promise a Grand Jury inquiry into the incident beginning next month.

On Saturday (Aug, 17), community activists plan a 1 p.m. march and rally at the Hennepin County Government Center calling for Twin Cities communities and organizations to come together for justice for Franklin. As answers and accountability have come slowly from Minneapolis Police and city officials, anger and frustration have risen in the community. Saturday’s rally/march is intended, “Justice 4 Terrance Franklin” organizers say, to show “how other oppressed communities are impacted by police harassment, brutality and profiling.”
