Police monitoring Black Lives Matter protests in Nevada

One rally is being organized by Building Communities and Families, while the other is a Black Lives Matter/End Police Brutality gathering, according to documents from the S.C. Department of Administration.

It's not that we don't believe that all lives matter; of course all lives matter.

Writing in New Matilda, Indigenous writer Amy McQuire compared the reaction the Australian public had to police shootings in the U.S. to that of recent Indigenous deaths in custody.

For example, many on social media, have gotten the perception that Black Lives Matter was connected to the deadly police shooting in Dallas last week. It had all the markings of a tense standoff at best, and possibly something uglier at worst.

Wednesday, Newberry shared a Tea Party blog post about upcoming Black Lives Matter protests. "We're here saying 'Hey, can we talk to somebody and see if we can get on the same page?'". The Black Lives Matter movement isn't about segregation, separation or disengagement, its about inclusion.

When asked if leaders of the movement thought protesters would change their focus and become as engaged in legislation as they were in protesting, Maejor said, "I can't control that". But he reiterated that Obama has cautioned against judging any one group by the actions of some members. And how can we, if we aren't socializing together and our kids aren't going to the same schools and playing in the same sports leagues? He even shared that along with an outpouring of support from the community for his force, some of his officers have actually had people tell them to their faces, "I hope what happened in Dallas happens to you". He spoke personally about what he's hearing from his officers, how they're feeling under siege, and how despite it all, his officers tell him they still want to do a good job.

A vigil in support of the Black Lives Matter campaign was held in the Town Hall Square yesterday evening. "Are we all on board?"

The scenes of the most recent controversial police involved shootings. They gathered in between the Flamingo and the Cromwell casinos.

Seeing the protester grabbed by police officers, others at the protest began to chant, "No justice, no peace!"
