    MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A protester from the Martavious Banks’ officer-involved shooting spoke at Memphis city hall.

    Banks was critically injured after being shot by Memphis police last year.

    The Civilian Law Enforcement Review Board or CLERB heard that case—CLERB heard two cases.

    They heard from Barbara Buress first.

    She was arrested in September 2018 and faced charges like obstruction of a highway and evading arrest.

    This all stems from a protest Buress attended on Elvis Presley Boulevard last year.
