Another killer cop walks—Michael Brelo, a Cleveland cop, was pronounced not guilty on May 23 by Judge John O’Donnell. Brelo was one of about 100 Cleveland area cops on November 29, 2012 who pursued the car Russell & Williams were in after cops heard the car backfire and decided shots had been fired at police headquarters in downtown Cleveland. He was one of 13 cops who together fired 137 shots—yes, they fired 137 shots—at Russell and Williams, who were unarmed. Brelo fired 49 shots during the chase, the last 15 of them while standing on the hood of the car. more
Statement from Carl Dix:
Madison, Wisconsin – NO CHARGES FOR COP WHO GUNNED DOWN 19-YEAR-OLD TONY ROBINSON COP ONCE AGAIN GETS AWAY WITH MURDER!
Today the system let another killer cop get away with murdering a young Black man. It was announced today that Matt Kenny, the white cop who fired 7 shots into Tony Robinson’s head, torso and arm—all of them fired in the space of 3 seconds, from “front to back” in the words of the District Attorney (DA)will face no charges.. Before making this announcement the DA went thru his own background. That his mother had been the youngest person in a Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) chapter back in the 1960’s. And that he was the 1st and only Black DA in the state of Wisconsin.
161 donors helped meet the goal of $15,000 for this campaign on April 29, 2015. Because the epidemic of murder by police is NOT stopping, more funds are already needed to spread this movement around the U.S. Your donation WILL make a difference.
