Black leaders in Columbus, Ohio are calling on their community to not murder one another on Saturday in honor of the holiday of Juneteenth.
From WCMH, "Columbus leaders call for Juneteenth ceasefire of violence in city":
Columbus community leaders are calling for a ceasefire in honor of the upcoming Juneteenth holiday.That means there's been a murder around every other day.
"We have exceeded the homicide rate of where we were last year, and that is unacceptable," said Charity Martin-King, president-elect of the National Pan-Hellenic Council.At least 91 people have been killed as of late Friday.
There were at least two shootings on Juneteenth Eve with one victim dead and another victim in critical condition.
In the wake of the Floyd riots, the homicide rate in Columbus surged 67 percent in 2020 to a record 170 dead and in 2021 the homicide rate is on track to double that of 2020.
