News Release
NAACP Vancouver Statement on 10/17 Police Shooting - 10/18/21

For Release: October 18, 2021

 

My dear community,

 

I’m sure we are all saddened to hear of the loss of another member in our community at the hands of police, specifically the Clark County Sherriff’s Department. There are very few details NAACP leadership knows at this time.

 

What we do know is there are several questions we need answers to, and many of these questions could be answered if there was bodycam footage available, but instead we are stuck here wondering, and hoping an accurate report of what happened is shared.

 

We hope an independent, open, and transparent investigation required by the new legislation, is conducted promptly to answer questions and relieve the anxiety these shootings cause in the community. 

 

This is crucial because true accountability depends on it.

 

In solidarity, 

Jasmine Tolbert 

President
