Black Law Enforcement Organizations Denounce NYPD Commissioner Bratton

Reported by www.blackwestchester.com

Black Law Enforcement Organizations from throughout New York State, which included The Grand Council of Guardians, 100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care, Law Enforcement Alliance, Blacks in Law Enforcement of America, National Latino Officers Association of America and others gathered on Wednesday, July 30, 2014 at One Police Plaza, to voice their outrage of the lack of control and accountability of Commissioner Bratton and Mayor de Blasio of the NYPD when it come to Police Criminality among NYPD rank and file.

The recent killing of Eric Garner — a man killed by NYPD Officers while using an illegal chokehold to restrain him— is just apiece in a larger puzzle of deep-rooted “isms” in the institution of law enforcement in the NYPD.

Since the exposure of the Garner choking, videos have surfaced on social media and in the news of other “out of control” NYPD Officers clearly violating “Use of Force” Policy and Procedures. Like the Eric Garner incident, officers receive only minimum punishment.

“The Broken Window Theory of policing used by Commissioner Bratton is a Broken Policy and Theory. Commissioner Bratton has used it as another cover for NO TOLERANCE policing,” declared Damon K. Jones of Blacks In Law Enforcement

There has been no clear evidence that his theory has actually produced better living conditions for the communities it is has been applied to. The end result is police officers harassing a certain community for minor offences and instead of building stronger relationships with the communities; the relationships are strained and highly combustible

Petition to Boycott the NFL and Sponsors for Refusing to sign Colin Kaepernick

We are asking all Black Law Enforcement Organizations, civil rights organizations, grass root organizations to do the same.  PLEASE SIGN HERE  

 

 

“What does it say about the NFL, and about us, when at least a half-dozen men who have been accused of physical or sexual assault have been welcomed into the NFL over the past week, while Colin Kaepernick still has not?

While some NFL teams were busy drafting names from the police blotter last weekend, Kaepernick was standing outside a New York City parole office, handing out two boxes of his own custom-made suits to men who needed them for upcoming job interviews. He has donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to charity. In March, it was reported by several news media outlets, including USA TODAY Sports, that Kaepernick will not protest the national anthem this coming season. And yet he’s still a free agent, so far unwanted by all 32 NFL teams.

 

The NFL is also broadcasting a message to Black people throughout the world that Black issues do not matter. It is uncommon that our children see athletes standing up for issues in their communities, especially for the many black men that have been unjustly killed by Law Enforcement.

As conscious Black People, we must send the same message to the NFL and their Sponsors that our dollars matter by boycotting the NFL and their products for basically punishing Kaepernick for his position on social justice issues.
