Jason Baronich shared the information below about a corrupt sheriff who was later protected by friends in the injustice system.

Date of Incident: 2010 through 2014
Individual Responsible: Mike Byrd
Outfit: Jackson County (MS) Sheriff’s Department
Phone: (228) 769-3024

Mike Byrd, sheriff of Jackson County, MS was indicted on 29 felonies:

  • 10 Fraud
  • 10 Embezzlement
  • 2 Hindering prosecution in 2nd degree
  • 2 Witness tampering
  • 1 Perjury
  • 2 Subornation of perjury
  • 2 Intimidating an officer in the discharge of his duties
  • 2 Extortion

Read the 15-page indictment > http://ftpcontent4.worldnow.com/wlox/Byrd%20Indictment.pdf

Extortion, embezzlement, witness tampering, kicked a man in the nuts while handcuffed on the car captured on dash cam destroying computer so it cant be evidence, doing a fundraiser for a choir that didn’t exist and pocketing the money, conducting surveillance on those who threatened his illegal operation, and numerous other charges.

Byrd, accompanied by lawyer Joe Sam Owen, went to court and got six months house arrest – tell me that’s fair.

Private citizens of Salt Lake City and surrounding areas recently took to the streets in the heart of downtown, demanding justice for victims of police brutality and killings. The protests took place yesterday against these unwarranted deaths, apparently focused on the killing of unarmed Dillon Taylor. The activists also highlighted the unnecessary use of lethal force against people like Darrien Hunt and many other victims.

Darrien Hunt and family, before men wearing badges killed him.

When the Salt Lake City police in Utah killed Taylor, they claimed it was because he failed to respond to police commands. But the real reason why he “failed” to respond to their “commands” was not out of personal hatred for the police, nor as an act of defiance. He was not resisting police, nor had he been engaged in any criminal activity of any sort. Instead, he was just listening to music on his headphones. Taylor “failed to respond” because he simply couldn’t hear police yet, and was trying to turn down his music.

Watch the Dillon Taylor video and see for yourself (video).

This case in particular bears a strong resemblance to the shooting of John Crawford in Beavercreek, Ohio. Crawford, 22, was on the phone with the mother of his child when police shot him without asking a single question. Crawford was holding a replica air rifle in a Walmart that sold the rifle. He had picked it up off the shelf while continuing his phone call, before purchasing the replica toy.

Check out some of the raw video footage of the protests last night in Salt Lake City captured by Adrian Lambrinos:



The protestors in Salt Lake City have set up a Justice for Dillon Taylor Facebook page, which has received thousands of likes.

Editors Note: To address this pattern of unaccountability, one must realize that trying to “fix” an institution based on coercion is a waste of time and efforts. Instead, we must move away from the doublespeak, and the real accompanying harm, that says that certain people – those who purport to be “authorities” – have a “legal” right to steal and initiate violence, in order to protect.

The information below was shared by Barbara Sprouse

Date of Incident: March 04 2014
Individuals Responsible: Darrin Kaplan #13421, Christian Belt #13694 & Chrisnar Sok #14069
Outfit: Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Phone: (702) 828-3111
Outfit: Clark County Detention Center Phone: (702) 671-3900

March 04 2014 – Dotty’s Casino Ranch & Vegas Drive. Three Metro Officers (Darrin Kaplan #13421, Christian Belt #13694 & Chrisnar Sok #14069) went into Dotty’s looking for a couple who allegedly tried to pass off a fake twenty at the 7-11 across the street. But not seeing the other person (Erin Breshears) they left for a few and returned to make bee line to JASON A MAHE.

Jason Mahe was sitting at a machine playing poker when the officers walked up to him and asked him if he goes by the name of ”Lucky”. Mahe looked up from his game and told them “No my name is Jason Mahe, what’s this about?” One of the officers told him he fit the description of a man who tried to pass off a fake twenty across the street and then asked him to step outside so they could “clear this up”. Jason stood up and one of the officers was in front of him and two behind him and this is also how they stayed when outside the casino.

Once outside the standard questions were asked and Jason answered them all when he was asked for his ID he replied he did not have it on him. When asked if he had any drugs or weapons on his person, Jason Mahe told the officers “I do not have any drugs no sir but I do have an unloaded pellet gun in my pocket here” as Jason reached into his pocket to pull it out and hand it to them it fell on the ground.

The next thing Jason knows he is being shot by all three officers. He was struck nine times – seven of those were in his BACK.

As his body jerked and twisted with each bullet that was hitting him he quickly fell to the ground in massive pain and shock from just happened. Jason over heard one of the officers say “OH SHIT NOW WHAT?”.

As Jason lay there in a massive pool of his own blood in critical condition, Jason thought he is going to die and for what telling the truth. As he was rushed to UMC Hospital on Charleston Blvd in Las Vegas, NV, he flat lined twice (he was told this later while still in hospital).

March 05 2014 – 8am near Rainbow and Smoke Ranch. I had just gotten up poured a cup of coffee was online reading headlines on Las Vegas Sun, the local paper, when I read the following headline: “Man shot by Metro Police officers at Dotty’s was a fugitive.” I dropped my cup of coffee and fell to knees in my living room and screamed “OH DEAR GOD NO” I knew who it was without reading anymore.

I got on the phone and called the police department and was told Jason was not there, so I called UMC Hospital (knowing that is where all trauma goes) again I was told he is not there.  I called every hospital in Las Vegas only to be told he is not there, so I made a call no parent ever wants to make I called the MEDICAL EXAMINER.

As I tried to tell the lady who answered the phone what had happened as I cried so hard she could barely understand me, she did the best she could to calm me down over the phone and she put me on hold (seemed like forever).

When she came back online she told me no he is not there but he is in UMC Hospital in critical condition and because of the privacy laws they could not tell me anything. I thanked her for her help and called back to the hospital where I was lied to once again – though my son who was there in critical condition and was still on the operating table fighting for his life – I was told NO HE IS NOT HERE.

So I got a ride to hospital and was told by staff and by officers that Jason was not there. They threatened me with jail if I did not calm down. I left and started calling every person at the Las Vegas Metro Police Department, explaining what had happened and I wanted information on my son and his condition. I was transfered to people who did not pick up so I was forced to leave a message, I kept calling back and even was hung up on.

Then I reached a Lt. Richards (who was the rudest person I have ever talked to in my life) and I told him what had happened and that I wanted info on my son Jason Mahe and I also asked him why didn’t anyone call me or come and tell me what had happened. The reply I was given from Lt. Richards was this: “Your son is a bad guy and we do not have to tell you anything about him or his condition – go get a court order.”

I did get an order from the court signed by judge William Kephart. But Las Vegas Metro Police still denied me the right to see my son who had been shot nine times, seven in his back, who was on life support and very much on his death bed. And no one who denied me entry got into any trouble.

Jason Mahe was in UMC hospital for over 18 weeks, where he unfortunately contracted several strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus plus bacterial meningitis, on top of his major health problems from being shot. Due to Jason’s being shot and him being on life support for so long and not only one but several strains of staph plus bacterial meningitis he is DYING!

Doctors at UMC Hospital told Jason that they have done all they can do they have given him every known treatment for these and for him to prepare himself for a very short life. While Jason was in the hospital several times he requested to make his one phone call and each time he was denied to make any calls, not even to me, his mother.

Some weeks after the shooting Detective Mitchell Dosch #7907 and his partner Detective Clifford Mogg#5096, investigators from homicide unit went to UMC Hospital to “interview” Jason. When the Detectives arrived at UMC Hospital Jason Mahe had just been given a very large dose of Dilaudid (hydromorphone hydrochloride) a heavy duty narcotic, and it was even noted in Jason’s medical chart that the Detectives were advised NOT TO “INTERVIEW” Jason right now due to the pain medication he was just given. But of course that advise was ignored. Jason Mahe recalls requesting a lawyer present while they were “interviewing” him but his request was refused. Jason does not recall much of that “interview” that day.

Finally Jason was taken to Clark County Detention Center (330 South Casino Center Blvd Las Vegas Nv 89101) and he finally got to make his phone calls that he had requested so many times prior to make and the first one was to me, it was so wonderful to hear his voice but at the same time it was heartbreaking due to the news of his health he was telling about.

Clark County Detention Center: (702) 671-3900

The jail had him for six weeks or so in a unit that they claim is for “medical”but according to Jason its more like the “hole”. Two large heavy steal doors before you even get inside of Jason’s unit. There is no visits from family or friends while you are in there and no phone contact. There is no other contact with other inmates very little contact from the “GUARDS “there.

Now when Jason was first put into the medical unit he was alone of course but now he is in a wheelchair, due to his femur bone being shattered in several places and his arm which is damaged beyond repair just hangs there. At this time Jason still weighed in between 160 lbs and 180 lbs, (he is 6ft. 6in.) but Jason was very week and could not transfer himself from the wheelchair to the bed or even go to the restroom without help from one of the guards there. Jason did not get to take a shower for well over a month due to the fact the medical unit has no rails or bars or special showers for inmates to use (yes the medical unit).

While he was in the medical unit Jason had to go have several operations on his leg where the infection was the worst. Yet that did not address the situation so only after his and my complaining, when his thigh was 36″ around and as red as sunburned skin, he was taken back to UMC Hospital for yet another operation.

Finally 22 weeks after Jason was shot I finally got to see him finally I fell apart he looked terrible he had lost so much weight he did not even look like my son – “OMG what have they done!?” I thought.

Jason was moved to another unit so he could talk with other inmates, use the phone and take showers but then on Sept.8th 2014 he had some sort of episode and they put him back into the medical unit.  Jason told me that on that day a corrections officer by the name of SKOBIE punched him in his face and choked him out to the point another corrections officer had to pull him off.

Jason is in a wheelchair and now weighs only 103 lbs yes – ONE HUNDRED AND THREE POUNDS! He is ill and he is dying the jail nor anyone else cares, he has lost over 147 lbs since March.

RadicalMovieNightFlyer30FAS Free Radical Movie Night Screening   30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle Fri. Oct. 24th

Oct. 24th Radical Movie Night “30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle

Oct. 24th Radical Movie Night

September’s debut of the Las Vegas Radical Movie Night went well enough that we will now be doing two showings per month. So, on every second and fourth Friday of the month the Sunset Activist Collective (along with Nevada Cop Block and Food Not Bombs Las Vegas) will host a free screening of either a documentary or a movie with significant social value.

The location where Radical Movie Nights will take place is The Sci Fi Center, which many locals already know from its longstanding tradition for showing independent movies and cult classics that are often not available in a large screen setting. (Disclaimer: the Sci Fi Center is not actually involved in the Radical Movie Nights, outside of permitting us to use it as a venue for showing movies.)

In order to coincide with the national Day of Action Against Police Brutality, which is held annually on Oct. 22nd (for more info see: http://www.october22.org/) October’s screenings will involve movies that relate to police abuses. On October 24th we will be showing “30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle” a documentary about the demonstrations during the World Trade Organization meetings in Seattle in 1999 and the police response to those demonstrations. (RSVP on Facebook here)

This film was one of the first to show large scale demonstrations from the perspective of those within the demonstrations. It also was in many cases the first time the average viewer saw uncensored and candid depictions of police tactics toward protesters and the way in which they often incited or even staged incidents within the protests in order to justify arresting and in many cases assaulting even peaceful protesters.

 Free Radical Movie Night Screening   30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle Fri. Oct. 24th

30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle

The level of organization, number of people participating, and type of tactics involved were all beyond what had been seen during any modern protests in the United States. For many years afterwards the “Battle of Seattle,” as it is often referred, was used as a sort of template for demonstrations both by protesters and the police.

About the Movie via Bullfrog Films (http://www.bullfrogfilms.com/catalog/30fr.html):

“30 Frames A Second: The WTO in Seattle, is a compelling first-person account of the events that unfolded during the week the World Trade Organization came to Seattle in November of 1999. It’s told from the perspective of 15-year veteran network news cameraman Rustin Thompson, who covered the WTO as an independent journalist. It is the story of how Thompson’s objective point-of-view evolved into a subjective account of what became an unscheduled, unruly outbreak of democracy.

Thompson, who had press credentials for the event, takes the viewer into the fray of tear gas, pepper spray, and police abuse; behind the lines and inside the convention center and press rooms; and along the marches, sit-ins, and demonstrations. His dynamic, up-close footage captures the passion, the confusion, the anger, and the courage of everyone involved, from protesters to police to delegates to bureaucrats.

RadicalMovieNightFlyerP Free Radical Movie Night Screening   30 Frames a Second: The WTO in Seattle Fri. Oct. 24th

Radical Movie Nights: Every 2nd and 4th Friday

With Thompson narrating, the film asks viewers to emotionally engage their own conflicting feelings about the demonstrations and behind-closed-doors meetings. “I was intrigued by taking a singular, personal approach to the events,” says Thompson, as he recounts how the protests affected him as a journalist and a common citizen. The result is an impressionistic journal of a decisive week that exploded into a massive expression of freedom: of speech, of assembly, and the press.”

This content was shared anonymously by someone wishing to make others aware of Kevin Dupre’s actions.

Date of Incident: Approx Oct. 14, 2014
Individual Responsible: Kevin Dupre
Outfit: Cheburne Police Department
Phone: (817) 645-0972

A petition to fire triggerman Kevin Dupre was started by Donna Earley, which is below in full.

Cleburne Police Chief Rob Severance,

302 W Henderson St Cleburne, Texas 76033

Phone (817) 645-0972

rob.severance@cleburn.net

Chief Severance,

August, 2014 your officers responded to a call. There is a video detailing an officer shooting of a 6 month old puppy. This video is very graphic to watch, but in order for us to get to the truth we must watch. After a short while on the internet…this video is going viral to show that the American citizen, people who have hearts are devastated and very angry with local police. You ask why? Watch the video and if you can ask that question following…then you won’t be signing this petition.

The video clearly shows how an officer from the Cleburne Police Department, Officer Kevin Dupre is calling the dog with kisses and a clicking/smacking sound.  The kind of sound that a 6 month old puppy associates with human kindness and play. As the 6 month old Maximus came running to the officer’s call….he was clearly wagging his tail and excited as though he knew he was going to get a treat or pat on the head. What happens next is horrifying. You will see Ofc Kevin Dupre coldly and callously aim his gun and shoot the dog numerous times killing him.

Another dog, a female named Cocoa, can also be seen in the video. the officer had Cocoa in his target sight…and the next bullet was fully intended for her. Cocoa originally ran from the sound of the gunfire…but stopped and turned around facing the officer. She stood there…and she did not know that she was next to die! Thankfully Animal Control called the officer just in nick of time to prevent her from being murdered in cold blood. Officer Dupre made claims that the dog was clearly aggressive and lunging for him. Well…he must have forgotten he was wearing a body cam. Because after viewing this video…it is quite clear the 6 month old Maximus in no way charged or seemed aggressive…but excited and playful.

There was another Officer there to back up Officer Dupre, Officer Carmac and at this point it is unclear the role this officer played in this clear case of animal cruelty.

We, the People of this country are ashamed, disgusted and damn right angry of the cowardly acts of this officer! You cannot turn your head on this one…this killing is totally unjustified and a vibrant young puppy died a horrible death. This puppy was loved and his owner Amanda Henderson was left devastated. The officer could have easily waited for Animal Control who was dispatched and trained in animal apprehension to arrive. Officer Kevin Dupre took it on himself to kill Maximus. You can tell that was his intent…as he called the dog out of hiding in a playful manner. “Here doggie”…..B-O-O-M!!!

We the People of this country are demanding that Officer Kevin Dupree be terminated immediately and charged with felony animal cruelty (which is now law in the 50 states, including Texas). We are calling upon you to take these actions without recourse.  What Officer Dupre did on this day is not different then the killing of a dog by a Raines County Texas Sheriff Deputy. That Deputy was terminated, charged accordingly, and agreed to never serve in law enforcement again. You cannot determine a difference in either of these shootings. They were both cold, callous, unjustified and recorded.

We the People are also demanding that the Officer pay restitution to the Henderson family in an amount determined by a jury of his peers in a court of law. Along with the restitution we expect a formal apology to the Henderson family from Officer Kevin Dupre.

We the People are also calling upon your department to launch a full investigation to determine the role of Officer Carmac in this killing. Upon conclusion of the investigation we expect this officer to also be reprimanded accordingly.

According to the witnesses and those knowing the dog, Maximus was not a dangerous dog, but a puppy who was out playing. Those involved in this shooting were wrong when they made the sound decision to shoot to kill. An officer’s duty is sworn to serve and protect…not search and destroy.

We the people demand justice and change. We demand all Law Enforcement to attend mandatory training on police/dog encounters. This has to stop…and stop now!

This is not my video. It was posted by a Youtuber Adam Saleh that I follow. I watch most of the Cop Block videos and this one is one of the worst cop videos I’ve ever seen.

Basically the Youtubers walk with normal clothing by a cop while fighting and the NYPD officer does nothing, Then they walk by in traditional garb from their respective cultures and the cop flips out. Even goes as far as asking them why they are dressed that way.

Editors Note: In the interest of transparency, and because it is individuals who act and who alone are responsible for their actions, it would have been good were the police employee’s face not blurred out and for his name and badge to be ascertained and shared.

The Washington Post just cleared Darren Wilson:

Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager after he moved toward the officer as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body.

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.

Some of the physical evidence — including blood spatter analysis, shell casings and ballistics tests — also supports Wilson’s account of the shooting, The Post’s sources said, which cast Brown as an aggressor who threatened the officer’s life. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are prohibited from publicly discussing the case.

There was no mention of the named black witnesses who have publicly stated repeatedly what they saw. Instead, it is speculation on the autopsy report (note late in the story the person commenting- Judy Melinek doesn’t even know if there is GSR on Brown, had never examined the body, but was opining anyway), we finally have Wilson’s sanitized description (he “asked” them politely to get out of he road, not told them to get the fuck out of the road and then slammed the vehicle in reverse as stated by named witnesses), and doesn’t even discuss the gun shot wounds to the back or the fact that Brown was up to 25 feet away and fleeing when he was shot. No mention of why Wilson never filed a report, either. Funny, that.

I think my favorite part was the reefer madness bullshit, in which it was stated he had enough THC in his system to cause hallucinations. Reminded me of the DARE days when cops with straight faces told kids that if they smoked pot they would jump out of windows thinking they could fly.

It’s almost like this story was tailor made to make white people comfortable. And mad props to the establishment for massaging the media and controlling the message:

Benjamin L. Crump, a lawyer for the Brown family, said Brown’s family and supporters will not be persuaded by the autopsy report or eyewitness statements that back Wilson’s account of the incident.

“The family has not believed anything the police or this medical examiner has said,” Crump said. “They have their witnesses. We have seven witnesses that we know about that say the opposite.”
The parents of Michael Brown, the black teenager fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., visited Washington to ask the federal government to take over the criminal investigation of his death. (Casey Capachi/The Washington Post)

Crump also said one of the reasons the family and protesters were opposed to a grand jury proceeding was because it gives authorities too much control over what the public would learn about the case, as evidenced by the leaks.

“The family wanted a jury trial that was transparent, not one done in secrecy, not something that they believe is an attempt to sweep their son’s death under the rug,” he said.

And that’s exactly what is happening- selective leaks and willful misrepresentation of facts. Shorter Washington Post- “Drugged Up Thug Accosts Cop, Peacefully Subdued by a Dozen Bullets. Move Along Now.”

*** Update ***

And the Justice Department is apparently as angry about this nonsense as I am:

Wth a grand jury decision looming on whether a white police officer should face charges in the killing of an unarmed black 18-year-old in Ferguson, Mo., the investigation has sprung a few leaks.

New details from the inquiry into Michael Brown’s Aug. 9 death — all provided by unidentified sources and which seem to support Officer Darren Wilson’s story of what happened that day — have emerged in St. Louis and national news outlets in recent days.

The U.S. Department of Justice condemned the leaks Wednesday as “irresponsible and highly troubling” and said, “There seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.”

***

A Justice Department spokeswoman responded in a statement to the Los Angeles Times: “The department considers the selective release of information in this investigation to be irresponsible and highly troubling. Since the release of the convenience-store footage, there seems to be an inappropriate effort to influence public opinion about this case.”

The reference to the convenience-store footage alluded to a video released by Ferguson police on the same day they disclosed Wilson’s identity. The video showed Brown apparently intimidating a store clerk shortly before the shooting.

Chris King, managing editor of the St. Louis American, a newspaper for black audiences, said law enforcement officials had offered him the leaks, saying “they had been briefed on the evidence and it didn’t look good for Michael Brown supporters,” but he declined and decried “third-party hearsay” in an editorial for the paper.

“Tensions are so high that preparations for riots, if Wilson walks free, are discussed in sober terms in local and national media and on street corners,” the American said in its editorial. “The editors of these powerful publications have shown a lapse in judgment and ethics that is not only shameful, but actually dangerous. We declare a mistrial in the court of public opinion.”

The leaks are about one thing, and one thing only- prepping the field for no indictment, as planned and executed by McCulloch. Then they can just blame the blahs who protest this travesty as not liking reality, and then can accuse the Justice Department of malfeasance when they press well deserved federal charges.

This is another one of those days where I am just ashamed of being white.

From the Washington Post, “Four Blackwater guards found guilty in 2007 Iraq shootings of 31 unarmed civilians“:

Seven years after American security contractors killed 14 unarmed Iraqis by firing machine guns and grenades into a Baghdad traffic circle, a jury in Washington on Wednesday convicted four Blackwater Worldwide guards of murder and manslaughter charges in the incident, one of the most ignominious chapters of the Iraq war.

The guilty verdicts marked a sweeping victory for prosecutors, who argued in a 10-week trial that the defendants fired wildly and out-of-control in a botched security operation after one of them falsely claimed to believe the driver of an approaching vehicle was a car bomber.

The guards claimed they acted in self-defense and responded appropriately to the car-bomb threat and the sound of incoming AK-47 gunfire, their defense said.

Overall, defendants were charged with the deaths of 14 Iraqis and the wounding of 17 others at Baghdad’s Nisour Square shortly after noon on Sept. 16, 2007. None of the victims was an insurgent….

Stockton Police claim that due to bankruptcy in Stockton Ca. they lack the funds needed to respond to an array of complaints, and that certain crimes must be reported by victims, via a police reporting kiosk in the departments lobby.

Some of these crimes include 459 residential burglaries, 10851 Auto thefts, and 211 armed robberies.

We find it a JOKE that they claim the funds and man power are not available to them to respond to serious crimes such as these, yet they are paying at least one, if not a whole team, of officers to monitor a Facebook page dedicated to keeping their unprofessional actions in the limelight.

The Facebook page is the Stockton Police Department, Corruption Reporting Page.

 

Admins of this page have recently had a bombardment of Facebook notifications come in, and have had the page forcefully “unpublished” for “violating community standards”. The only time the page gets these notifications is when photos of Chief Eric Jones, or councilman Elbert Holman are posted with captions or dialogue beneath that either point out lies, or failures among the department or city leaders.

Stockton police officers make and average of $60,000 dollars a year. How much of that tax money is being used to keep these truths and opinions from the same people forced to pay for their “service”?

Please call Chief Eric Jones and ask him to justify these actions. Ask Chief Jones why his department cannot afford to protect and serve the citizens, but they can afford to monitor a Facebook page dedicated to exposing corruption within their department. Don’t allow tax payer to pay one more dime for censorship.

Call: Chief Eric Jones at Office of the Chief of Police (209) 937-8218

Please also call: Public Information Officer, Joseph Silva (209) 937-8209

The National Day of Protest began 19 years ago, but recently it has been taking on a whole new degree of importance. With the shootings of unarmed citizens like Mike Brown, 18, Dillon Taylor, 20 and John Crawford, 22, in the past year, many activists are saying that this “National Day of Protest to Stop Police Brutality, Repression and the Criminalization of a Generation” is one that no one should sit out.

Find Assembly Points and Events in Your Area >> http://www.october22.org/#assembly

The Day of Protest was initiated by a diverse coalition of organizations and individuals who came together out of concern that the peoples’ resistance to Police Brutality needed to be taken to a higher level nationwide.

According to the organizers, “We continue to see young black men, including John Crawford, killed by law enforcement on virtually a daily basis. Now is an opportunity to step forward and have your voice heard.”

The National Day of Protest is Wednesday, October 22nd and will take place in cities all over the nation. It aims to “bring forward a powerful, visible, national protest against police brutality and the criminalization of a generation.”

Furthermore, it seeks to educate the public about “the state’s repressive program.”

Those most directly under the gun of Police Brutality are to be highlighted by the protest, but the organizers also emphasize that this is an issue which reaches into all parts of the society. They are thus calling on all to stand in the fight against this official brutality.

Find out if there is a local protest in your area, or contact the organizers to get something going at their official website for the Day of Protest! Then help us SPREAD THE WORD to everyone you know who believes something has gone seriously wrong with policing in America.
