Sun Prairie parents hold discussion about race and police following Robinson shooting

Following Tony Robinson's officer-involved shooting death, a group of Sun Prairie parents felt a more urgent need to hold an already-planned open dialog on race and police.

So, about 60 Sun Prairie residents met inside the Prairie Phoenix Academy Thursday night along with Sun Prairie Police officers, school district officials and the Sun Prairie African American Parent Network.

While emotions were still raw over the March 6 shooting, this discussion actually started after AAPN President Jerry Ruffin's sons met with a Sun Prairie police sergeant, after they felt like they were being racially profiled while driving.

Ruffin felt he had a productive conversation with police after the incident. Now, he wants to expand that conversation to other African American community members, especially young people in Sun Prairie.
