Two police officers who murdered Black citizens and then lied under oath to justify the murders are currently in training to train other police officers. Raoul Mosqueda along with his partner Gildardo Sierra shot Darius Pinex to death Jan 7, 2011. Michael St. Clair II shot Wiliam Hope, Jr to death on July 8, 2010. In separate court suits brought by the Pinex and Hope families St. Clair and Mosqueda each gave sworn testimony contradicted by tapes from the nights of the murders. Yet Mosqueda & St. Clair are on track to train other police officers.



A press conference/Protest will be held today, January 30, 2 p.m., at the 7th District Police Station, 63rd & Loomis. Gloria Pinex and other families of people murdered by Police and concerned members of the community will be in attendance. They will demand that Mosqueda and St. Clair be indicted and locked up, not put in charge of training other cops!



Justice for Darius Pinex! Justice for William Hope, Jr! Justice for All!



Several years of powerful protests and rebellion have brought to light the role of the police in enforcing, with brutality and murder, the systemic oppression of of Black people and others oppressed by the system. The use of lying, murdering cops to train other cops shows no one in authority plans to change that.

The release of the damning Justice Department Report detailed the CPD’s history of outrages violating the Civil Rights of its Black and Latino citizens. The injustice of law enforcement in Chicago is known across the US and around the world and is an example of what police do across the country. The danger of increasing those abuses with federal forces has been threatened by the Fascist Donald Trump in a tweet about murder rates in Chicago’s neglected Black community and by his overall policies.
