A call for justice was the cry in downtown Houston Tuesday afternoon.

The families of two Houston area men who say they were the victims of police brutality converged on the US Federal Courthouse.

Robbie Tolan and his parents along with family members of Alfred Wright…You may remember Wright died near Jasper this year under what his family calls suspicious circumstances. 

The rally comes on the heels of the shooting of Michael Brown by a police officer in Ferguson.

Activists here in Houston say it’s time the killing of Black men across America stops.

Ben Crump who represents the Tolan’s in Houston as well as Michael Brown’s family spoke at the downtown rally.

He says officers should be required to where video cameras on their uniforms so there won’t be any questions if a suspect is shot.

Tolan, who was shot in 2008 by Bellaire Police Officer Jeffery Cotton, is expected in federal court Wednesday for his resurrected civil case against the city of Bellaire.
