Around 200 Lansing area residents gathered at the state Capitol on Thursday to remember victims of police brutality and call for an end to the “victimization and “brutalization” of young blacks.

Lansing joined hundreds of other U.S. cities and towns in hosting a National Moment of Silence against police brutality.

Protests have erupted in recent days in and around Ferguson and St. Louis, Mo., after Michael Brown was shot and killed by police.  Brown was unarmed.

At the Capitol, many of the participants wore red arm bands and held signs with the names of people who died at the hands of police, including Brown and several others.
