Below is the full list of demands.

  • An apology from Police Chief Wade Gourley and Mayor David Holt and the immediate resignation of Gourley, whose lack of leadership resulted in aggressive actions by the police towards peaceful protesters, escalating tensions and resulting in violence that could have been avoided.
  • The immediate release without charges of all incarcerated protesters who were arrested for nonviolent offenses or “resisting arrest” while defending themselves or their loved ones from unlawful use of excessive force by Oklahoma City police and the sheriff.
  • Disciplinary action and termination be taken against all police officers who violently attacked peaceful protesters.
  • The immediate installation of an independent citizens’ complaint review board for the OKC PD, which will have authority to review all complaints, including use of force, and discipline offending officers.
  • Mayor Holt meet with us within 24 hours.
  • Provision of training in de-escalation tactics for all OCPD officers, which must include training in interactions with persons who have mental health issues as well as training that includes cultural sensitivity.
  • The immediate public release of the arrest record of Olain Jefferson, Jr. and body cam footage of all police involved in his arrest.
  • The immediate public release of all video footage of the Oklahoma City Police Department incident involving and resulting in the death of Derrick Ollie Sr.
  • The arrest and prosecution of the man who identified himself as the president of a northeast Oklahoma City neighborhood's homeowners association for the kidnapping and illegal confinement of Travis Miller.
  • Justice for the family of Elray Barber who was shot and killed by Oklahoma City police officers on Christmas Eve 2019.
  • Justice for Rolana Keeler who was shot by Oklahoma City police officers on Christmas Eve 2019 while unarmed.
  • Mayor Holt commit to the construction of a grocery store on the east side of Oklahoma City to be completed within six months.
  • The granting of clemency and immediate release of wrongfully charged member of our community, Julius Jones, by Gov. Kevin Stitt.
Holt said he is scheduled to meet with Black Lives Matter leadership on Tuesday and that he "looks forward to discussing their issues of concern at that time."

Dickerson also said the organization plans to also address further actions to take place in the event the demands are not met.

Today, the president of the FOP, other officers rallied to show support of Gourley.

I know nothing about him, and have no opinion, but someone on here (I don't remember who) recently indicated that he needed to go. What are the complaints against him?

Getting a grocery store in that neighborhood isn't likely, since the last one was unable to operate successfully.

Releasing convicted felons probably doesn't have much change either.

So, it sounds like the protests will continue...

Nothing wrong with sitting down and listening to what they have to say, the bold part ensures that little or nothing will be done now.................

They should have just started with these two "requests" ...
  • The immediate installation of an independent citizens’ complaint review board for the OKC PD, which will have authority to review all complaints, including use of force, and discipline offending officers.
  • Mayor Holt meet with us within 24 hours.

Hopefully Mayor Holt will let a trained hostage negotiator run the meeting.

First 3 items: NO
Grocery store should be up for discussion, may have to be gov supported? Not sure about that one.
De-escalation training; ok
Citizen review board; ok, with a requirement similar to what Fyrtwuck posted.

Or, the city reaction could be; we won't talk with you as long as you're threatening more protests and the accompanying violence.

I would like to know when the taxpayers are going to revolt and start demonstrating! Don't we have needs also? The problem is that no one would listen to us because we wouldn't try and destroy a city or businesses. No demands should be met until they stop their activities otherwise they know their "activities" will get results and they'll revert anytime they want something.

If I was the Mayor or Police Chief I’d wipe my a—with their list of demands on live TV. What they should do is publish the police arrest records of these concerned individuals.
