Protestors march to San Jose police HQ, demanding firing of Officer Philip White


    December 19, 2014--A group of protesters marched peacefully Thursday afternoon demanding that San Jose Police Officer Phillip White be fired after his antagonizing tweets related to the nationwide protests against police killings of unarmed black men. 
     The march went from the District Attorney's office in downtown to San Jose Police Headquarters, where protestors dropped off a petition demanding White's firing.
    The march of about 60 people was organized by the Coalition for Justice and Accountability, who are calling for the immediate firing of Officer White for posts he made to Twitter.
     Police Chief Larry Esquivel, who received the petition personally, stressed that it has been no easier for him or his department 
    At the end of the rally, protesters projected images of White's tweets onto the headquarters walls. 
    Unlike recent protests in Oakland and Berkeley, this one remained peaceful throughout. 
    Organizers stressed to the crowd that lawless behavior would be counterproductive to their cause. 
    There were no arrests made.  Full Story
