Demonstrations Mark 4th Anniversary of Marvin Booker Death

On July 9, 2010, 56 year old Marvin Booker was killed by sheriffs in the Denver jail after an arrest for failure to appear in court. A community uprising took place after the city refused to release videotapes of the incident. Marches, protests and vigils have taken place every year as did last Wednesday on the four-year anniversary of his death. Family members of others who have been killed by police also were honored.
