Mass Action Against Police Brutality condemns the Cambridge police for the unlawful detainment of 21-year old Cleon Ali Hodge on October 13, 2016. We demand that Sergeant Detective Ahern be immediately fired, charged with assault and battery, and prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
Boston Police killed Terrance Coleman after a 911 call for an ambulance on October 30, 2016 in the South End. His mother and eyewitness said he was unarmed and not a threat to anyone. Police claim he had a knife. We demand the prosecution of the officers who killed Terrance Coleman.
Across the Country…
North Charleston, SC – Walter Scott, unarmed, killed by officer Michael Slager on 4/4/2015. A bystander recorded Walter Scott being shot 5 times in the back, yet a mistrial was called this week due to a hung jury.
Cinncinnati, OH – Sam Dubose, unarmed, killed by officer Ray Tensing on 7/19/2015 during a daytime traffic stop. Despite the bodycam footage, murder trial ended in a hung jury last month.
Charlotte, NC – Keith Lamont Scott killed by officers on 7/20/2016. Although his death was recorded showing him backing away from the police with his arms at his side in a non-threatening manner, the DA announced last week that he would not charge the police officers who killed Keith Lamont Scott.
Come to a discussion about how to build a mass movement to force the government to enforce the law when it comes to the crimes of the police.
