The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression with Chicagoans from across the city will demand the end of IPRA and its “agenda” of police impunity at a 10:30 a.m. press conference, Thursday, July 23rd, at the Independent Police Review Authority, 1615 W. Chicago Ave, Chicago.

In a press statement, they said the firing of Lorenzo Davis this past week is the final and inarguable proof that the Independent Police Review Authority’s true agenda is total impunity for the police. Out of the 400 police shootings that IPRA has investigated in its eight years of existence, they have only judged one solitary shooting unjustified. IPRA has failed in its supposed mission to hold the police accountable, while it has succeeded in its real mission of generating an untouchable police force. The answer is clear: IPRA must go.

The Chicago Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression is and has been demanding an end to IPRA and the Police Board, to be executed through the enactment of an elected Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC).

“We demand that Chicago’s City Council enact CPAC! Once again we demand that the Department of Justice bring criminal cops to justice! Finally, we call upon the people of Chicago who cannot take any more police crimes and cover-ups to join us on August 29th in our mass march in support of CPAC!”
