"He shouldn't be free. He killed her," Detroit pastor W.J. Rideout told ABCNews.com Friday after her funeral. "He shot her, whether it was accidental or to commit murder or a crime."
McBride's family reached out to Rideout, who is also a civil and human rights activist, to speak on behalf of the family.
"This is a senseless murder," pastor Rideout told ABCNews.com. "We will not tolerate another Trayvon Martin, another Jonathan Ferrell. And here we have Renisha McBride, the third African-American who didn't have a weapon in her hand and didn't do anything to deserve being shot."
In September, former Florida A&M University football player Jonathan Ferrell, 24, was gunned down by a police officer while looking for help at a woman's home after a car crash.
In 2012, Trayvon Martin, 17, was unarmed when he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman. Zimmerman was acquitted of the murder this summer.
