Dozens of people took part Sunday in a Tacoma May Day march from the Sawyer Tot Lot in the South End to Tacoma Police Department headquarters with a "Justice for Jackie is Justice for All" theme. In the front of the procession in white is Lisa Earl, the mother of Jacqueline Salyers, who was fatally shot by Tacoma police in January.
