Protest in SLC over conviction of Chinese NYPD officer

Protest in SLC over conviction of Chinese NYPD officer

(KUTV) Mass protest in Salt Lake City Saturday over the conviction of a New York police officer in the death of an unarmed black man.

More than 100 members of Utah's Chinese community demonstrated outside Salt Lake's main library.

Officer Peter Liang fired his gun when he opened a door to a dark stairwell in a New York housing project in 2014.

The bullet ricocheted and hit and killed Akai Gurley. Earlier this month, Laing was convicted of manslaughter.

Demonstrators in Salt Lake today think that rial wasn't fair.
