Omaha, NE-Leaders behind a group more than one hundred people strong gathered Monday to fight for the Omaha family they say are victims in the excessive force case.
"Fix the Police" met at the OIC building in North Omaha. It's the second time in a week.
"With the officers being fired, I think it's a step in the right direction," said D'Shawn Cunningham, "but more needs to be done."
They are demanding charges filed against the officers. They also don't want any charges against the Johnson brothers.
No charges have been filed against the Octavius and Jacquez Johnson in relation to the seward incident. In Nebraska, you can be arrested without being formally charged.
City prosecutor David Smallheiser,is the one who would decide if charges would be filed against the Johnson brothers.
He told KMTV Monday he hasn't decided yet, but plans to by Thursday. He said he needs to look at the police reports, and evidence in the case.
"I just find it hard to believe that as high profile as this case has been the city prosecutor hasn't reviews the reports," Robert Wagner said at the meeting.
The arraignment for Jacquez and Octavius Johnson is scheduled Friday morning.
They've been very outspoken about what they call police brutality and excessive force.
They held a protest last week, where more than 100 people marched through the streets of Omaha demanding police review and action. They say the police investigation,which led to four firings,isn't enough.
