>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
(Proposition A).

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.

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.

New York Post says, “Corrupt-cop doc THE SEVEN FIVE is a must see.”

Variety says, “Perhaps the most amazing aspect of Dowd’s confession — and Russell’s documentary — is the total ease with which Dowd reconciles his twin careers as all-out gangster and dedicated cop.”

Village Voice says, “It’s familiar and infuriating – but enthralling.”

PopMatters says, “Tiller Russell’s thrill ride of a documentary is constructed out of an intoxicating mosaic of archival news and surveillance footage.”

Scars & Stripes 4 Mile March San Diego a call by Coalition Against Police Violence

July 4th, 2015 

The epidemic of police violence in America is alarming, and disproportionately affects communities of color. While the American government does not track homicide data of state law enforcement bodies, a private organization called Killed By Police began collecting data in May 2013, and its data reveals a disturbing pattern. According to Killed by Police, as of April, 20, 2015, American police have killed 351 people. That is three homicides per day, or roughly one stolen life every 8 hours. Of those 351 homicides, 231 victims were members of a community of color or not identified by race.

When we compare this data to the rates of homicide by police in other countries, the picture becomes all the more disturbing. China, whose population is four and half times greater than the U.S., had only 12 homicides by police in the entire year of 2014. The U.K. had only one death by police in 2014. And Germany and Ireland had none. It is disheartening that among industrialized nations, the U.S. leads in only two categories: the number of people incarcerated and the rate at which civilians are killed by law enforcement. This should not be.

The CAPV will combat these issues on multiple fronts, including a nationwide boycott and the nationwide march on July 4th. The march will remind the world that there is a certain segment of Americans who do not enjoy the independence that was declared on July 4, 1776. We will lift up the names of the Americans—Black, Indigenous, Asian, Latino, and Arab—who have been brutalized and killed by America’s police. We will march for the Scars & Stripes inflicted upon our people by the American government, which is complicit through its silence in this oppression. We will rally for a day when the truth that all men are created equal, and endowed with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, is finally self-evident. And we will fight for transparency, accountability, and reformation of the American (in)justice system.

****IMPORTANT****

We’re looking for 10 comrades to give $5 for this important investment in police misconduct tracking systems.
National Association Against Police Brutality – NAAPB is launching PIRP a Police Incident Reporting Platform, go to pirp.naapb.org for more info, NAAPB will be partnering with community service organizations such as UAPTSD all across the country to provide them with a platform to report police incidents. And NAAPB will be assisting those organizations with educating and organizing their communities on reforming the Criminal justice system and ending police brutality. We’re looking to raise the annual membership fee of $50 and I KNOW we can do it, the more people pitch in, the faster we can do this.
