The boy was later identified as Laquan Allen Ward, lived about 2 miles away in the West Garfield Park neighborhood.
According to recent reports, Police are searching for the shooter.The boy was on the sidewalk when a vehicle drove by and someone in the vehicle shot at him. He was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

Investigators have not said if the boy was targeted or if this was random. Family members believe he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. For the record-Austin leads Chicago as the “Deadliest Hood” so far in 2017  with 16 homicides 80 wounded for a total of 96 known shootings/killings according to statistics.

GUNCD

When 30,000 Americans die each year due to gun violence, it is time to acknowledge that we are suffering from a modern plague. When schoolchildren are gunned down by single shooters with a high-capacity magazine, we suffer from a modern plague. And, when criminals can buy weapons without having their backgrounds checked, we suffer from a modern plague.

This Vigil will be part of our early effort to “Prevent the critical Issue of Gun Violence” for 2017 in areas in Chicago where this plague is taking young lives in abundance. (This corner is where a three year old is in critical condition after being shot in the head in an apparent accident.) The goal is to stop unnecessary loss of life!

WHY: The issue of gun violence — more specifically, Chicago’s gun violence — is by no means a new issue. However, President Trump has singled out the city, even threatening to send in the federal troops, as a part of his “law and order” campaign. The current discourse coming from the White House focuses on more police, more prison and increased criminalization of Black and Latino communities as a solution. Unfortunately, this narrative of retribution fully incorporates the Fraternal Order of Police viewpoint without considering the concerns of the community.

For immediate Release: Alton Sterling “The Quest for Justice Rally”

Posted on

 

alton-sterling-1

Baton Rouge. — Hundreds will gather on World Human Rights Day December 10, 2016 to commemorate fatal shooting of Alton Sterling by two Baton Rouge Police

The Quest for Justice will be led by Sterlings Family including his Aunt Sandra Sterling, Activist Leader Gregg L Greer, Freedom Fist International, and the others groups and leadership including CERAC a organization within the United Nations.The gathering will be prompted by one important message. “Show the world that you can-stand up for Justice with Alton Sterling,”

The event will take place at 2112 North Foster Drive, in the parking lot of Triple S Food Mart, were Sterling was detained there by Baton Rouge Police Department officers. After an anonymous caller reported that a man believed to be Sterling was threatening him and waving a handgun while in the process of selling CDs. The officers tased Sterling, then forced the heavy-set man to the hood of a sedan and then to the ground. Sterling was pinned to the ground by both officers, one kneeling on his chest and the other on his thigh, both attempting to control his arms.

One officer exclaimed, “He’s got a gun! Gun!” One of the officers yelled, “If you fucking move, I swear to God!” Then Salamoni was heard on the video saying, “Lake, he’s going for the gun!” One of the officers aimed his gun at Sterling’s body, then three gunshots were heard. The camera panned away just before the camera panned back and three more gunshots were heard. The police officer sitting on Sterling’s chest was not in the picture and the other officer who drew the gun, was about 3 feet (0.91 m) away. His gun was pointed on Sterling, who had a gunshot wound in his chest. According to witness Abdullah Muflahi, the officers then retrieved a firearm from Sterling’s pocket. The officers then radioed for Emergency Medical Services.

According to Parish Coroner William Clark of East Baton Rouge, a preliminary autopsy on July 5, indicated that Sterling had died from multiple gunshot wounds to his chest and back.Multiple bystanders’ cell phones captured videos of the shooting as well as store surveillance cameras and officer body cameras.

I don’t think anybody is suffering like me. I’m sitting here at the store wishing I could just say hey to Alton. It’s lonely out here to. Wishing I could get a CD to cheer me up. I see ppl come and go and everybody so far has looked over at the spot where he once sat. His chair is even still sitting on top of the table. Tears falling from my eyes is the only reason I can’t see clearly. I love you phat Boy and I miss you even more. I wish I could tell you that but you are no longer here. I ate an extra piece of cake in your remembrance..lol..that boy loved him some cake….well once again, the scene is empty but only because you’re not here. RIP my baby..I love you like a phat girl love cake….Organizer, Gregg L.Greer said, “On the Afternoon of December 10, 2016 there will be more than demonstration in Baton Rouge shouted “no justice, no peace,” We will continue to ignite and set off , an international dialog-Our goal is to remove any blockage standing in resistance to protest Sterling’s death. “The whole thing is not just about Alton … it’s about justice in all of our community nationally and internally.” I call it final justice, because we the people are tired now. After Tamir Rice, after John Crawford, after Eric Garner, we are tired now, and the only alternative must be for change. So we stand with Sandra and the Sterling Family because final justice means the killings of young black men and women has to end.” Nomore!

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.

For Immediate Release: Community Activist Leadership to hold Press Conference/ Are preparing Legal Battle against Mayor Rahm Emanuel for misuse of funds

Posted on Updated on

For Immediate Release: Community Activist Leadership to hold Press Conference/ Are preparing Legal Battle against Mayor Rahm Emanuel for misuse of public funds and his position. 

(Press Conference-at City Hall-2rd Floor  )

 ***** Media Advisory *****

A press conference to Chicago lay out the case against Mayor Rahm Emanuel usage city funds to pay off nonprofits, faith leaders, community activist, and social justice workers “as if those funds were his special personal slush fund.” In the wake of the Laquan McDonald shooting fallout- Rahm Emanuel’s effort was coordinated to quiet any opposition that directly resulted with Emanuel trying to turn around all negativity and harm done to his looming political image in the wake of the McDonald shooting and also growing public disapproval ratings—In addition to growing citizen mistrust in the Chicago police stands out amongst other major problems that Rahm tried to quell-which ignited his misuse of public funds.

The activist investigating the issue, seriously question if the local community is aware of the selfish and disturbing use of diverted City of Chicago funds by the Chicago Mayor. The funds in question under normal circumstances should have been used for awarding independent non-profits and civic organizations primarily to better the city through scholarships and city programs.  

Many who understand that the established culture at Chicago City Hall- under Emanuel has long been able to avoid real accountability — and also we should mention Emanuel’s avoidance of sworn depositions — because City Hall bureaucrats, like those in the Chicago Police Department, continue to operate under the unwritten policies protection of policies, practices and legal standards aimed to shield the Mayor from potential harm.

For our effort-more specifically-they we want to send a clear message, that simple says, “we still haven’t forgotten, and we are prepared for a legal show down.” Leading Social Justice organizations involved are Chicago Violence Interrupters, Freedom First International, The Chicago SCLC, Tree of Life Justice League of IL along with a growing list others. Join us!

A Faith Commentary: If God Gave you five minutes to Live by!

Posted on Updated on

Greer Front Banner 2016

If God gave you five minutes to live by, what would you do in those last moments. Would you try to fulfill any dream that you have always wanted to complete?
Would you spend that time saying goodbye, to your family members? Or would you spend that time traveling finding the worldly exotic pleasures-that made you happy in life? After all was said and done would you wait until the last minute to “get it right with God.” 
 
The Christian Faith dictates, that followers should not wait until the end of their lives to obey, honor, and empower your faith. One reason why we all must react is because no one knows the appointed time the end will come. Much like the corporate manager who puts the junior manager in charge of the office while he is away. As people of faith we must plan for this very important moment at the end of our lives by taking charge of our lives until our leader(God) returns. Tragically, most people don’t prepare for the moment when death catches up to them but God ask us to proceed with eternity in mind.
 
Stories of those who have had a deathbed conversation, show that if you look mostly at elderly people, you will find that they always tend to take the end of days more seriously and are better prepared. In truth none of us know when were going to die, perhaps we’ll live until old age or maybe you’ll die in a tragic car accident tomorrow. (Hope not!)

If you haven’t done so, make your life right with God Today-Tell him that you are sorry for all sin. Then make every effort to obey him. Regardless of the circumstances. When it’s over all that really matters is what you’ve done.

Key Question: What immediate steps can you take to incorporate these changes right now into your life.
