Des Moines Demonstrators Protest Police Brutality

About two dozen demonstrators turned out in front of the State Capitol Thursday evening as part of a nationwide protest of the violence in Ferguson, Missouri and police brutality nationwide.

The rally was organized by Darriana Donegan, a Drake University student from Saint Louis. Her father lives just five minutes from the rioting. Donegan says, while the violence in Ferguson is in the spotlight, racism and police brutality exist everywhere.

“It keeps happening. And it seems as though people are getting numb to it because it happens so much which is why we need to use our voice today and say something about it now so that America doesn’t just get numb and get used to it happening.”

The demonstrators held a moment of silence to honor those they say have been unjustly killed by law enforcement.
