Demand Justice for Miciah Lee

A Statement from NAACP Reno-Sparks Branch No. 1112 : 

On January 5, 2020, Sparks Police officers shot and killed Miciah Lee, an African-American teen. His mother, in desperation, had called police begging for them to save her 18-year-old mentally ill son who had threatened to kill himself. “Lee had committed no crimes, but wanted to die,” Feemster said. “He suffered from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder all his life. His distraught mother called the police for help. She told them he was mentally ill and threatening to kill himself. “The officers came and killed him,” Feemster said. “Those involved wore body cams and videos exist of the incident. The videos have not been released to the family or the attorney representing the mother, Terri Keyser-Cooper.
