Witnesses Remain Silent: Rev. Charles Harrison Joins The Show
IMPD is looking for any tips in the shooting death of 13 year old Matthew McGee this past weekend in the parking lot of Long John Silver’s at Castleton Square Mall.
According to IMPD, witnesses are not cooperating with the investigation. Police say there were several teens on the scene during the shooting, but the teenagers were counseled by their parents not to talk to the police.
Rev. Charles Harrison of the Indianapolis Ten Point Coalition joins us to talk about why these teens and their parents refuse to cooperate with IMPD.
"As I started hearing that there were witnesses who were being counseled by parents to not talk to the police, it just broke my heart. From what I'm hearing, there is this fear in the community that if their child comes forward... then who is going to protect them from retaliation? We've got to move past that idea. We have to encourage people to come forward." - Rev. Charles Harrison
