It’s Answer Time
In the Aleah Jenkins case, Rev. Shane Harris has been asked by the mother of the victim to accompany her to the videotaping of her daughter’s arrest, Rev. Shane Harris will not be viewing the video.
Ms. Jenkins is optimistic and while she has many questions, she is hopeful that the SDPD will be transparent and forthcoming. Seeking the help of Rev. Harris, as Keiala Jenkins says, It’s answer time.
Whether the video shows foul play or not, she wants the truth to prevail. As many of you know, Rev. Harris has redefined how African American San Diegans make their demands for answers. He has fought for accountability in San Diego as well as in the state’s Capital. Keiala Jenkins has also mandated that all Black San Diegans to come together and stand as a united front to receive justice for all, Aleah and herself.
Rev. Harris is not attending the videotaping due to police policy, however, he will be escorting Keiala Jenkins. After the viewing, Rev. Harris will also be available to address the press following his meeting with San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit. He has been in contact with Chief Nisleit, the Chief has been supportive, cooperative and believes the family and the community will heal and that the SDPD wants to encourage this kind of community engagement.
