Representatives of the NAACP’s Houston branch, the Nation of Islam and other groups said they have confidence in the legal system and will continue working to ensure the officers are prosecuted.

“We will not allow anyone to come into our communities, hurt our families and then walk away,” Carolyn Scantlebury, president of the NAACP Houston chapter, said at a news conference. “We are going to stay on top of this. We are here to fight.”

One sergeant and seven officers were suspended with pay last month after being accused of using excessive force against the then-15-year-old, who was arrested in late March following a brief chase.

The Harris County district attorney’s office and the Houston Police Internal Affairs Division are conducting investigations.

Houston Mayor Annise Parker and Police Chief Charles McClelland have promised a thorough investigation.
