James Boyd

Protest over Albuquerque Police Shooting

This was the scene the morning after James Boyd, a homeless man, was shot by police in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains.  This event caused outrage in the community and eventually led to a huge protest this past Sunday, two weeks after the shooting.
