Updated to add a photo of Jonathan Price.
His name was #JohnathanPrice. In Wolfe City, TX he was known as a hometown hero. Motivational speaker, trainer, professional athlete and community advocate— he was dearly loved by so many.
Yesterday he noticed a man assaulting a woman and he intervened. When police arrived, I’m told, he raised his hands and attempted to explain what was going on. Police fired tasers at him and when his body convulsed from the electrical current, they “perceived a threat” and shot him to death.
Here is a link to support his family is.
I have spoken to the family and have agreed to do whatever it takes to get justice for JP. – Lee Merritt

A hopeful sign in a horrible story. More of this, please. Or better, stop killing people of color.
