(WIVB) – Local activists gathered in downtown Buffalo Wednesday night for a “teach-in”.

They met on Genesee Street where Willie Henley was shot by Buffalo Police over the weekend after allegedly hitting a police officer with a bat.

People spoke in support of reforming the police department and adding a lot more oversight, including a revamped Buffalo Police advisory board with subpoena power and the ability to change, remove, and amend Buffalo Police policy directly.
