Billy Garner, 25, and his 10-year-old cousin DeJohn Davis, both of Oakland, attended the protest carrying a framed photograph of another cousin, Billy Vine, who they said was killed by an Oakland police officer in 1999.

“I feel like with everything that’s going on it’s unsafe for DeJohn to even be outside,” Garner said. “I feel unsafe to come shop at Walmart now because the police might act irrationally.”
