Bill Bratton, “The People Say ‘NO’ to 1000 More Cops”

1801381_948995385134146_6530255873815555326_o

Bratton, Police Unions and the City Council all want to add 1,000 cops to the nation’s largest police force, the 7th largest army in the world.

We don’t.

We don’t want Broken Windows and we don’t want militarized police.

Join families and community members as we say NO NEW COPS, justice for our loved ones.

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said it was entertaining to see a group of Activist address their concerns to the City Council about the danger of adding a 1000 more cops.

“It was actually entertaining. It was a little disruptive,” Mr. Bratton told reporters. During the Council hearing, he had quoted the entertainer Jimmy Durante, telling council members that “everybody is trying to get in on the act.” The City Council Members Laughed!

When Bratton was ask by the News Reporters about the opposition to the 1000 new NYPD, Bratton said; “I think you’re going to see that’s a very small number of people that don’t want more police in New York City. Fortunately, nobody is paying much attention to them.”

Bratton arrogance and disrespect for the human family has challenged us to produce thousands of people that says, “NoMoreNYPD”.

Bratton send us a message, now is time for the people to send him a message.

Share with others and let us in a unify manner, “Shut Bratton Arrogant Ass Down.”

Shut Down The Pro-Cop Conference/Rally At City Hall

10414894_323283487864075_263910334316762992_n

One again we are forced to create a voice that is loud and precise that it could not be ignored.

We need to continue to be the voice for all those brothers/sisters who has been assassinated by police all around the world.

To have another pro-cop rally at “City Hall” when the people are still being denied justice in the case of Eric Garner, Ramarley Graham, Kimani Gray, Shantel Davis and thousand of other, is an attack on all those that has been protesting/marching and screaming for justice.

I believe that everyone has the right to express their belief and support any struggle in any manner they want, but not on the blood of our stolen love ones. Police terrorizes people around the world and murder people with impunity. We the people must send police and those that support killer cops a message!

We will not be silent or silenced.

………………………………………………………………………………

My Brothers and Sisters in the struggle. Let us bring a lot of noise making objects. Drums, horns, pots and our voices. When they speak we will shut them down.

We also need to make sure that we arrive early, if we have enough people present we could do a die-in at all the entrances to City Hall and stop people from going in.

We also need to make sure that who ever is coming to support the pro-cop event is recorded on camera, video or picture. The world need to see the faces of those that support the militarize police department and killer cops.

We also need pictures of all those that has been murder by NYPD. We need those that are coming to support police see the faces of those that police has murder.

We also have parents of those that has been killed by police coming to stand in solidarity with us and share there stories of how police has not just killed their love ones, but also has sentence them to death as well..

No Cop Zone – Can It Change Policing For Ever

10987710_356435411206800_5172464498078903835_n

Join the families of people executed by the NYPD, Copwatch Patrol Unit, and Disarm for a talk and discussion.

People have had enough of the police invading neighborhoods, terrorizing hallways, executing people over minor disobedience. The massive protests these past few months let us know that it’s not just longtime political organizers who feel this way. There is massive popular support for real resistance to the police.

While these protests may have gotten quieter in the dead of winter, we never stopped planting seeds of dissent for the spring.

It is time for some material changes on the ground. By now it is clear that these changes will not come through the court system or street demos. This evening Disarm will propose ideas to end police tyranny in neighborhoods where they do the most harm.

Please join us March 21st at 5:30pm to discuss the conditions on the block and how these proposals could underscore the strength people have found to resist the bullying of the NYPD.

About the Speakers:

Hertencia Petersen, aunt of Akai Gurley

Pink Houses, a housing project in East New York, Brooklyn when he was gunned down by police officer Peter Liang who failed to follow proper procedure and protocol. Police officer Peter Liang for four minutes argued with his partner over whether to tell their superiors about shootting Akai Gurley. Peter Liang said “I’m going to be fired,” and instead of calling for an ambulance he decided to call his union.

Jose LaSalle (Copwatch Patrol Unit (CPU))

CPU seek to end police repression through directly monitoring police while they are engaging the public through questioning, detainment, or arrest. CPU spend their time walking the streets, observing police, witnessing and recording police interactions with citizens on camera, video-record, audio-record, and/or paper. CPU concentrate in areas where known trouble making cops are assigned or areas of high police activity (Impact Zones). CPU also advise people of their rights and listen to their stories and documents those stories.

Disarm the NYPD

Disarm is a campaign that is calling for the immediate disarming of the police department and the demobilization of the police from our neighborhoods.

Shut Down Grand Central – We The People Will Not Be Silent or Silenced

The shooting of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old African American boy, occurred on November 22, 2014, in Cleveland, Ohio. Two police officers, 26-year-old Timothy Loehmann and 46-year-old Frank Garmback, responded after receiving a police dispatch call describing a “young black male” brandishing a gun at people in a city park.[1][2] A caller reported that a juvenile, was pointing “a pistol” at random people in the Cudell Recreation Center, and stated twice that the gun was “probably fake”. The officers reported that upon their arrival, Rice reached towards a gun in his waistband. Loehmann fired two shots within two seconds of arriving on the scene, hitting Rice once in the torso.[1][3]
Rice’s gun was later found to be an Airsoft replica, though lacking the orange safety feature signifying that the gun is not real.[4][5] Rice died on the day after the shooting.[6] His death has been ruled a homicide by the Cuyahoga County medical examiner.[7]
In the aftermath of the shooting, it was reported that Loehmann, in his previous job as a policeman in Independence, Ohio, had been deemed an emotionally unstable recruit and unfit for duty.[8]
The incident received national and international coverage, in part due to the time of its occurrence, coming shortly after the recent police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri; the death of Eric Garner in Staten Island, New York; the police shooting of Akai Gurley in Brooklyn, New York just two days before; the shooting of John Crawford III in Dayton, Ohio; and the subsequent unrest following these incidents had attracted worldwide attention.
