When looking back at his encounter with LMPD, Garrett compared the way officers responded to protesters to war.
Garrett hopes the investigation leads to a better relationship between law enforcement and the community especially those living in poverty.
He believes in order to that officers and government officials will have to be more involved in the community.
“I want to see y’all out here really trying to bridge gaps,” said Garrett. "I want to see y’all really out here trying to bring change to this community because when the west end or when the ghetto or people in poverty they see that y’all are faking because y’all talk all this big stuff y’all passing all of this money around talking about how want to help the ghetto but y’all aint out here.”
Dee’s attorney, David Mour, believes that protesters are being targeted by LMPD. He says his daughter was arrested recently for jaywalking when she was protesting with a group.
Mour hopes the investigation means officers will be held accountable.
