Raleigh protesters seek changes in police department

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — After more than two weeks of protests in downtown Raleigh, protesters are demanding change from the city’s leadership, particularly in its police department.

The News & Observer reports that on the 15th consecutive day of protests Saturday, about 150 demonstrators traveled through downtown, marched to the Executive Mansion and eventually to Central Prison.

They heard from a woman whose son was fatally shot by Raleigh police. Gloria Mayo is the mother of Keith Collins, a Raleigh man who was killed in February.

Mayo said she wanted to be a voice for her son and other people who have been killed by police.
