On August 5th, 22-year-old John Crawford III was shot and killed by police officers in the Beavercreek Walmart after officers responded to a 911 call about a man holding a gun in Walmart. It was later discovered that Crawford, who is black, was actually carrying around a BB gun that is sold in Walmart stores. Both Walmart and Attorney General Mike DeWine refused to release surveillance footage of the shooting, which sparked a series of rallies demanding that the tape be released.
