A protest rally is scheduled for 12 Noon, December 30, 2015, Michigan and Randolph Streets in Chicago.

 

Leaders of the movement to stop murder by police responded today to news that a Cleveland grand jury declined to indict two officers for killing 12 year old Tamir Rice last year, as he carried a toy gun in a city park. This comes less than 3 days after Chicago police killed Quintonio Legrier, a 19 year old college student, and Bettie Jones, a grandmother of 10.

Carl Dix, co-founder of the Stop Mass Incarceration Network, said, “We saw these cops ride up on Tamir and shoot him down in less than two seconds. We saw them refuse to give him any medical assistance after shooting him. We saw them tackle his sister and put her in the back of the police car when she ran out to comfort him. Yet the system tells us that these murdering cops committed no crimes.”

Dix is a representative of the Revolutionary Communist Party, which posted More Police Murder… More Murdering Police Go Free! This Cannot Go Down Like This! This Cannot Go On! revcom.us, saying, “After over a year of lies and cover-up, the IN-justice system now says they will bring NO charges against the police who murdered Tamir Rice! This is outrageous. This is intolerable. Tamir Rice was a 12-year-old boy, playing with a toy gun in a city park. He was shot down in less than two seconds by police who rolled up on him.

“How many more will these murderers in blue shoot down people? How long can this be tolerated, from people who are supposed to ‘serve and protect’? What kind of a system does this?”

The Stop Mass Incarceration Network is responding, along with activists and organizations with calls for protest in the streets tonight and Tuesday.
