INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The city of Indianapolis just came off the heels of a violent weekend.
“When you look at the level of violence in the city of Indianapolis, over the last six years, and each year, we seem to gradually increase, I think Indianapolis is now heading towards becoming the next Detroit or Baltimore, said the Rev. Charles Harrison, board president of the Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition and lead pastor of Barnes United Methodist Church.
As cities nationwide deal with violence, they’re also hearing the voices of the people. There have been local and nationwide protests against police brutality and calls for reimagined policing. Monday night, the Indianapolis City-County Council approved an ordinance that adds civilians to the group that oversees Indianapolis Metropolitan police policy.
