"We are here out of concern for our community. We're here because we love Jemel. Jemel was, as we now call him, the church's musician. He played for all of our churches. None of us can make a particular claim of being his pastor because we all pastored him in various ways. I'm here because Jemel played for my grandmother's funeral just on Friday. He rendered his services unto our family. Talked to him Friday night, jokingly as Jemel always does. Jemel loved life."

"Right now we have a family that's devastated. We have a mother that's devastated. We have a community that's devastated. And not only am I here just out of love for Jemel, I'm here standing as a black man. A black man who's just tired, tired of being mistreated, tired of things going the wrong way, tired of the narrative being this exact same in every situation."

"We love Jemel and we want him to be remembered for the joy that he was, the gifted musician that he was, the security officer that he was. Serving... Jemel saved lives that night only to lose his life, senselessly. So we want answers. We want results and we want them now, as soon as possible."
"We're here today because obviously he was one of the good ones. We're not going to tolerate a cover-up. We're not going to tolerate this being swept under the rug. We're calling for a full investigation. I think those of us who have been fighting against racial profiling are clear that racial profiling is not only often a nuisance but in this case it was obviously deadly."

"And it bothers me that every time a black man is killed the first thing that they attack is his character. But Jemel is speaking from the grave today. Jemel is speaking. His blood is speaking to us and letting you and I know across this country, this community and this nation that we will no longer allow assault weapons to kill our black men."
A group of clergy and activists are calling for an independent investigation into a bar security guard's fatal shooting by a suburban Chicago police officer.
About 50 people rallied Friday in the Midlothian police parking lot to protest Sunday's slaying of 26-year-old Jemel Roberson.
Roberson was outside a bar in Robbins, southwest of Chicago, and holding at gunpoint someone involved in an earlier shooting. Roberson was shot after officers from several agencies responded to the earlier shooting.
State police have said witnesses told investigators a Midlothian officer ordered Roberson to drop his gun before opening fire. Witnesses also reportedly shouted before the shooting that Roberson was a guard.
Roberson was black. The officer is white. He is on paid leave and his name has not been released.
