FRAMINGHAM – Nine years, after a Framingham Police SWAT team officer fatally shot Eurie Stamps Sr. in his Fountain Street home, an organized group is asking for justice.
They want his name mentioned along with George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, and others with the Black Lives Matter movement. They also want the case re-opened and investigated and the officer who shot him fired.
A crowd of about 150 gathered in front of the Memorial Building at 2 p.m. today for a two-plus hour rally with speeches.
Mayor Yvonne Spicer spoke, family members of Stamps spoke, Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy spoke. Representatives for Senate President Karen Spilka, Senator Ed Markey, and Rep. Jack Patrick Lewis spoke. Framingham City Councilor Tracey Bryant spoke.
