COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Hundreds of people have marched to police headquarters in Columbus to call for justice for victims of police brutality.

The Columbus Dispatch reports (https://bit.ly/161gBLe ) that about 400 people marched peacefully from the Ohio State University campus to a park and then to police headquarters.

Demonstrators were protesting the chokehold death of an unarmed black man in New York City and the fatal shooting of a black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Grand juries decided that no criminal charges were warranted in both cases.

Police Chief Kim Jacobs says the city’s police department is one of a few large departments in the U.S. to be fully accredited. She says to maintain that designation the department must constantly review and study such things as avoiding racial profiling.
