One sign read, “Your Silence Will Not Protect You.” Alamo Heights is a predominantly white affluent neighborhood in the 78209 zip code north of downtown San Antonio.

Protests across the country were fueled by the May 25 death of George Floyd in Minneapolis that led to a murder charge against a police officer, and aiding and abetting charges against three other officers.
