Rouge Chicago Cop-John Poulos”
***** Media Advisory *****
CHICAGO, IL-Social Justice activist will speak out and stand together for a Protest Rally on December 6, 2016 at 5:00pm. They are calling attention to- Sgt. John Poulos is being investigated for multiple incidents of “unjustified and excessive use of force.” According to police, the sergeant said he opened fire after 19-year-old Kajuan Raye twice pointed a gun at him during a foot chase two weeks ago-an incident weeks agao in the West Englewood neighborhood of Chicago. Soon afterward Poulos shot Raye in the back in cold blood. Police never found a weapon, despite a thorough search of the area. In 2013 Poulos shot and killed Rickey Rozelle in a darkened gangway at 1935 North Lincoln in Chicago. Poulos later relayed that he pulled the trigger because Rozelle threatened to kill him and “turned toward [him] with a shiny, metallic object in or near his hand,” according to records from the Chicago Police Department and IPRA. CPD awared this cop for his actions even promoted him.
It’s time to get bad cops of the streets for Public safety-We want to send a clear message to the public-that we won’t stop until this “Killer” cop is jailed. Stand with us at the Poulos owned family bar-STEPS from where Rickey Rozelle was murdered.
QUOTE: We believe only sadistic serial predators, “kill like that”-it would seem to us that the time is over due for change with the way the City of Chicago investigates “bad cops” because overall the results have shown absolute failure. Yes, we are asking Kim Fox to get involved as well as Federal Authorities, we must also question the role of our city leadership-post “Laquan McDonald,” due to the fact that to date we are seeing the unnecessary loss of life-at the hands of police. This time, I and Freedom First International plan to use any and all resources available, Chicago Policing must change now, or may more people will, die.
