“The purpose [of the protest] is we have too many unsolved murders,” Allison McLeod, of Homewood, said. “We want all of our loved ones to be treated with dignity, just like they do for police dogs and also for slain police officers. Nobody deserves to die, but we all deserve to have the same treatment.”

There were 57 homicide victims in Pittsburgh last year.
