Mid-South group protests MPD and Director Armstrong

Posted: Updated:
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

This morning some members of the Mid-South based group commission on religion and racism protested in front of 201 Poplar to criticize the Memphis Police Department and Director Toney Armstrong.

The group led by Isaac Richmond says over the last twelve months, fifteen black men have been killed by Memphis police officers, even calling MPD the judge, jury and executioner.  Because of that they are calling for director Armstrong to resign or be terminated.

But today on FOX13's Good Morning Memphis Richmond was asked about these allege incidents, but failed to give a direct answer.

The group had at least five members out this morning passing out flyers.  They say they will gather each Monday morning until Mid-June before they try to get attention from the nation's capital.
