This Wednesday, June 12th, the West Wednesday Rally – demanding accountability for the police murder of Tyrone West, and accountability in every case of police brutality – will be at:
GREENMOUNT AVENUE & 33RD STREET
Support the struggle to put killer cops – Chapman, Ruiz and all the others – in cell blocks for the brutal killing of unarmed Tyrone West, at the hands of 11 to 15 Baltimore cops, and a Morgan State University cop, David Lewis!
As announced, the re-examination of Tyrone’s body – by an independent medical examiner – concluded that positional asphyxia (not a heart problem or dehydration, as the Baltimore City Medical Examiners Office falsely & shamefully claimed as the likelihoods) was indeed the cause of death! In other words, the cops murdered Tyrone!
None of those cops have yet been charged with any crime for that vicious murder, or for any other brutal, racist action they’ve committed, like the severe beating of Abdul Salaam 17 days earlier, even though — in a civil case in the spring of 2016, brought to court by Mr. Salaam — the jury did indeed find cops Chapman & Ruiz (who also instigated the attack on Tyrone) plus a third cop, all guilty of excessive force & brutality!
These racist outrages must be fought!
Put killer cops in cell blocks!
Let’s continue the fight for accountability!
