75 Rally to Spotlight Black-on-Black Crime

From Times Wire Reports

About 75 people marched in Cincinnati to draw attention to black-on-black crime that led to rioting in April after an unarmed black man was shot by a white police officer.

The crowd included police officials, officers and children--black and white.

It was the latest in a series of rallies after the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Timothy Thomas. His death led to three nights of rioting in Over-the-Rhine, a predominantly black, poor area of the city.
