CLEVELAND, Ohio — About a dozen community protesters took to the steps at Cleveland City Hall Monday to show their dissatisfaction with the way local leaders have handled the investigation into the Nov. 29, 2012 police chase and shooting.

The group said they plan to hold a similar protest Tuesday outside the office of Cuyahoga County Prosecutor ‎Tim McGinty.

The protesters, led by Art McCoy of Black on Black Crime, ‎say they felt the recent indictments of six police officers were not enough.

One officer, Michael Brelo, is facing two counts of manslaughter, and five others are facing misdemeanor charges of dereliction of duty.

The chase started after an officer at the justice center said someone in the suspect’s car fired a shot at him. It ended in East Cleveland, when 13 officers fired 137 shots at the two unarmed suspects.

The suspects, Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, were killed.

The protesters believe council should start their own investigation into the incident.
