Several dozen protesters took to the streets again Monday night, holding signs and chanting, “What do we want? Justice.”
The protesters began around 6 p.m at the office of Sim Gill, the Salt Lake County district attorney, on 500 South in downtown Salt Lake City, where they pasted signs on his windows. Then they went into the street to stop traffic. They then marched down to State Street and 400 South, where they stopped traffic again, causing lines of cars to be backed up for a whole block. They finally moved to Main Street, where they stopped both cars and a TRAX train, which eventually turned around.
Starting last Wednesday, this group, “Justice for Bernardo,” said it would come out to protest every night until officials release the police report on the death of Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal, 22, who was shot and killed by police on May 23. Officers fired more than 20 shots at him as he ran away.
