A rally in loving memory of Aiyana Jones, a girl shot by the cop while she was sleeping on a couch during a botched raid.
May 16 will mark the sixth anniversary of the brutal slaying of 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones by Detroit Police Officer Joe Weekley. She was shot by the cop while she slept on a couch during a botched raid. The killer is still employed by the Detroit Police Department. He was charged with involuntary manslaughter and two lesser charges in her death, but the case was dropped in January 2015.
Justice hasn’t been served for Aiyana and her grieving family.
We’re planning a peaceful rally in front of the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center on May 21 to honor the memory of Aiyana and other victims of police violence and demand demilitarization of police. We should draw as much attention as possible to the lack of justice for the families of those who lost their beloved ones at the hands of the police.
Invite everyone you know and join us on May 21.
We should stand up for the better future of our kids!
