Black Lives Matter Sacramento is collaborating with LEAD and SacACT to bring the pain to City Council.
For years SacPD goes to city council, asks for money for more surveillance, and they are told “yes” every time.
Who do you work for City Council?
Dazion Flenaugh was killed by SacPD in April of 2016.
Joseph Mann was killed by SacPD in July of 2016.
Que was beaten by 6 SacPD officers in February of 2016
G was physically hurt by 8 SacPD officers in August of 2016
The media isnt talking about it
THE MEDIA ISN’T TALKING ABOUT IT
CITY COUNCIL ISN’T TALKING ABOUT IT
SACRAMENTO COMMUNITY POLICE COMMISSION ISN’T TALKING ABOUT IT
OFFICE OF PUBLIC SAFETY AND ACCOUNTABILITY ISN’T TALKING ABOUT IT
OUR MAYOR ISN’T TALKING ABOUT IT
NOT ONE CITY GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL IS TALKING ABOUT IT!!
“What if this happened in Sacramento” is all they ask when they interview us in the media
IT IS HAPPENING IN SACRAMENTO
Our police are not recognizing that we pay their salary and providing us with any transparancy.
Our city council is not recognizing that we pay their salary and providing us with any resolutions.
-All we get is more cameras at stop lights.
-All we get is lies by SacPD to the media when they kill our loved ones.
-All we get is “stop resisting” when we arent..just to validate an arrest.
-All we get is no when we ask for help from council members, while SacPD only gets yes’s when asking for more money.
The lawyers for Joseph Mann held a press conference.
“I am outraged to learn that the City of Sacramento permitted this officer to carry a gun, after he engaged in a series of troubling behaviors, unbeftting a police officer”. Attorney John Burris.
“The officer that killed Joseph Mann had a history of alcoholism and and had a previous restraining order for spousal abuse of his wife a children. The City of Sacramento backed him up. This officer must be fired and prosecuted ! Read the Press Release which will be posted later today.” – Richard Owen
We dont know about you but we are tired of seeing people that look like us, dying in the street, while city council does nothing in all its power, to curb the violence by the state.
Gentrification in Black neighborhoods > Homelessness of a high Black demographic > laws that criminilze the homeless > Black bodies being handled.
It is all connected and it all needs to stop.
IT NEEDS TO STOP!
