Weekly vigils are being held to honor Marcus Deon Smith, a homeless young man killed by police in downtown Greensboro almost 2 years ago. Much like the death of George Floyd in MN, Marcus was held down on pavement by a group of police, and hogtied, making it impossible for him to breathe. As yet, no police have been held accountable for his death, even though the NC Medical Examiner called the death a homicide. Instead, the city is spending thousands of tax dollars to hire lawyers to defend the suit by the Smith family. From 12 noon to 1 p.m. every Monday the public is invited to join the vigil on Washington Street, in front of city council and police depts. We stand silently in masks, holding signs, which are there to use, if you have none of your own. Call CH Holcombe for more info.
