A group of 7 people, carrying signs and beating on a drum, protested recent police shootings in front of the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office in Santa Fe on Tuesday afternoon.

They carried signs reading: “Justice for Alfred Redwine,” “Justice for James ‘ABBA’ Boyd” and “Justice for Mary Hawkes,” alluding to recent fatal shootings by Albuquerque police.

Group organizer and spokesman Jeff Green said they were protesting Attorney General Gary King’s not pursuing criminal charges against Albuquerque officers named in a 46-page U.S. Department of Justice report released this month.

They are also demanding an overhaul of police training curriculum to include mental health crisis intervention training and de-escalation tactics.
