DEMAND TO SAN DIEGO CITY COUNCIL: AN INDEPENDENT COMMUNITY REVIEW BOARD ON POLICE PRACTICES!
THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 2015
SAN DIEGO CITY COUNCIL CHAMBERS
202 “C” Street, 12th Floor
Special Evening Meeting of the Charter Review Committee of the San
>ARRIVE AT 5-5:30pm to clear metal detector and secure seat! <
A coalition of the Black Student Justice Coalition, Women Occupy –
San Diego and United Against Police Terror – San Diego is calling
upon the San Diego City Council to reform the San Diego Citizens
Review Board on Police Practices. We have a real chance of
getting an independent Community Review Board with subpoena
powers – SHOW UP to support this call!
City Charter reforms essential to the effective functioning of civilian and
community oversight of the SDPD include:
1. Independent investigators and subpoena power, as provided to the San
Diego County Law Enforcement Review Board by the voters in 1990
2. Intake, tracking and review of all complaints filed is done by the CRB
rather than by SDPD Internal Affairs, also as modeled by the San Diego
County Law Enforcement Review Board approved by the voters in 1990.

THE HAND THAT FEEDS – May 22-28
Synopsis: At a popular bakery café in New York’s Upper East Side, undocumented immigrant workers face sub-legal wages, dangerous machinery, and abusive managers who will fire them for calling in sick. Mild-mannered sandwich maker Mahoma López has never been interested in politics, but in January 2012, he convinces a small group of his co-workers to fight back. Risking deportation and the loss of their livelihood, the workers team up with a diverse crew of innovative young organizers and take the unusual step of forming their own independent union, launching themselves on a journey that will test the limits of their resolve.
An incendiary documentary about corruption in the NYPD during the 1980-1990’s.Synopsis: For Michael Dowd, being a police officer wasn’t a calling, it was just a job— and, assigned to the 75th Precinct in crime-ridden East New York, not an easy or lucrative one. Seizing the opportunity to profit, he stole money from drug dealers, eventually recruiting his partner into an expanding criminal ring. Their 1992 arrest exposed widespread corruption in the NYPD. Weaving together Dowd’s revelatory testimony from the investigation, dramatic surveillance footage and interviews with the primary players, The Seven Five tells his incendiary tale.
