WICHITA FALLS (KFDX/KJTL) — Midwestern State University students gathered at the Jesse Rogers Promenade for a Justice for Breonna Taylor rally Thursday afternoon.
Multiple students and one professor stood up and spoke how they feel about the Kentucky grand jury’s ruling not to charge any of the officers for Taylor’s death but also about police brutality in the nation.
One student leader said she was on the edge of whether or not to attend the rally, which was held by student organization, Amnesty International, not just because she is a Black woman herself, but Wednesday night, she read someone post on social media that Black people have all the help they need. And she disagrees.
“If someone is going to be charged for the desctruction of a wall over the destruction over a human life, how can I ever truly feel safe?” MSU general business junior Jaye Surles said.
Surles said she is not only concerned for her life but of those of her siblings, future children and the country. Surles encourages her peers to educate themselves on what is going on in the country and not just go by snippets of things they hear or see.
