Vigil for John Crawford

John Crawford was a 22 year old Black male, who was gunned down by local police at a Dayton Walmart while browsing through video games and playing with a fake toy gun. There is footage of his murder but no one wants to release the tape.

On August 18, 2014 OSA will be giving a letter to Attorney General Mike DeWine demanding the release of the footage of John Crawford's murder. We are hosting this vigil as a peaceful demonstration, but also as a chance to remember John Crawford and stand in solidarity as a community - in want , the need for justice, and in support with John Crawford's family. Let's get the tape released!

August 18, 2014 at 6:30pm - 8:30pm

    I found the gun that John Crawford was allegedly holding--for sale on the walmart website. A crosman air rifle. When news media is saying "it wasn't a toy" they are correct. An air rifle is a firearm albeit one that is very unlikely to do much damage. My point is NOT that this excuses what happened. Media should be ashamed of themselves for putting this spin on it to smear the victim when Walmart made available for purchase a firearm that looks much more dangerous that anyone could pick up. So for those defending the police, you must realize this could easily be your 12 year old kid wandering off and picking this thing up. Would you say the murder was justified then? Do we now consider it a normal acceptable risk that we might be gunned down by a cop for picking up merchandise in a store? Hell, when I was 18 I bought a crosman CO2 handgun from Walmart. I picked it right up no questions asked. The police have completely lost their ability to use judgment and they have never been interested in exercising it when black lives are involved. Disgraceful. Walmart should be accountable for this wrongful death as well.
