WASHINGTON — Hundreds of protesters hit the streets of Washington DC on Saturday night, to protest against police brutality and the killing of Jonathan Price by a Texas police officer earlier this month. Members from the “TheyThem” Collective marched holding a banner reading “Free the people, fight the power, fuck the police” and “Defund, Disarm, Disband.” They chanted slogans against the police passing diners eating out on a busy commercial street. Price, a 31-year-old Afro-American man, was shot four times in the torso at Kwik Chek store in Wolfe City, Texas. On October 3, Price, a 31-year-old Black man, was tasered and subsequently shot four times at a petrol station in Wolfe City, Texas. Police officer Shaun Lucas, aged 22, has been charged with murder.
