For Immediate Release: Social Justice Organizers-Protest (DCFS) call for immediate attention and investigation by Officials and immediate DCFS overhaul

Posted on Updated on

For Immediate Release: Social Justice Organizers-Protest Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) call for immediate attention and investigation by Officials and immediate DCFS overhaul 

 

PDCFS

Press Briefing and Protest Rally

Friday, JULY 14, 2017  at  11 am

 DCFS OFFICES-1921 S Indiana Ave, Chicago, IL 60616

Introduction

The questions are timely, as DCFS reels from disclosures that it has systematically failed to protect children. For example, a recent Chicago Tribune investigation put the spotlight on three Cook County cases in which children died of beatings or starvation shortly after DCFS closed investigations into mistreatment in their homes, and the tragic case of Semaj Crosby, who was found dead in April in Joliet Township after the agency had closed four neglect investigations.

We (organizers) agree with the recent reports DCFS had creating “a toxic work environment in which it is foreseeable that some investigators did take dangerous shortcuts that can lead to lethal errors.” More importantly, these problems continue to this very day.

Opposition

The organizers plan to cover the following primary issues:

(DCFS)

  • DCFS Investigators were being pressured to close Child abuse cases even when they had failed to perform basic tasks like contacting police or doctors. In order for true reform to occur-the department must look into past issues and advise the public.

(George Sheldon)

  •  Under George Sheldon’s watch Investigators were being pressured to close abuse cases even when they had failed to perform basic tasks like contacting police or doctors.
  • We(group) is also calling for, a detailed ethics probe up to prosecution if Sheldon’s actions lead to contracts with individuals who had ties to Sheldon.

(Child Abuse Policy Cases)

  • Under Illinois law, most records of unfounded child abuse or neglect cases are expunged within a year. That’s a dangerous standard that must change.
  • To save lives we are seeking a monthly public informative that DCFS reports to parental enhance and inform about rights and DCFS policies. We have spoken to numerous parents who have suffered at the hands of DCFS, resulting in the loss of their rights. Must have more public discourse.

Press Statement

This group of national Community organizers has been working diligently to address and combat official corruption, miscarriages of justice and Police Brutality in Chicago.

We must review the past issues specifically from the past two years at DCFS. For example according to a recent article from the Chicago Tribune with stated, “George Sheldon was adroit at tapping federal funds and brought tens of millions of new dollars into Illinois by clearing away bureaucratic tangles. But his tenure was clouded by an ongoing ethics probe into contracts that benefited some of his Florida associates, as well as several high-profile child fatalities that highlighted investigative shortfalls in the troubled agency.” We (organizers) believe- We do understand that the Governor of Illinois recently put a brand new head in charge of the DCFS These more recent issues must be addressed, and the public must be informed!

Gregg L.Greer, President of Freedom First International

 

 

Recent- Change national perceptions of people of color and others about the serious and real need for DCFS overhaul.

For immediate Release: Social Justice Organizers rally at Chicago City Hall (Mayors Office) on Malcolm X Day to call out Political Corruption and Police Brutality!

Posted on

The Ballot or the Bullet

Press Briefing

Friday, May 19, 2017at noon

 Chicago City Hall-121 N LaSalle Dr. Chicago, IL 60602 (second floor, press area)

Introduction

Chicago City Hall, The Windy City has kept its crown as the most corrupt major city in the country over the last 40 years. Since the U.S. Department of Justice began to collect data in 1976, Chicago’s Northern District of Illinois, which includes Chicago, Cook County, and 17 other counties, has had 1,642 convictions, according to Simpson. That compares with 1,316 in LA and 1,260 in the New York district, which includes Manhattan, the Bronx, and six other counties.

Opposition

The organizers plan to cover the following primary issues: 

(City Hall)

  • 29 alderman have been convicted of crimes related to his or her official duties since 1972. Local Politicians act outside of public concerns this is a serious problem.

(Rahm Emanuel)

  • Mayor Emanuel was the topic of several Chicago new reports in 2012, following claims by the Chicago Teachers Union that the mayor had been withholding resources from Chicago Public Schools. 
  • Mayor Emanuel also received flak for his decision to leave Chicago amidst plans of a Chicago-wide teachers’ strike in order to speak at the Democratic National Convention.
  • Rahm Emanuel has said, he didn’t understand the gravity of Laquan McDonald’s shooting death at the hands of a Chicago police officer until just before the city settled with the teen’s family last spring, and that he wasn’t aware other officers may have falsified reports about the shooting until just after the video was released to the public. Most of the public believes Emanuel is responsible for the cover-up and delay of this investigation.

(Chicago Police)

  • The police force wants to usher a signal to the public that CPD regards the use of lethal assault weapons as an acceptable solution to problems so the public as the same right. That’s a dangerous standard!
  • CPD Uses Deadly Force in Violation of the Fourth Amendment and Department ….. point—igniting longstanding concerns about CPD officers’ use of force, and the City’s systems.

Press Statement

This group of national Community organizers have been working diligently to address and combat Political corruption and Police Brutality in Chicago. This day like Malcolm historically advised African-Americans to judiciously exercise their right to vote, but on this symbolic day, we (organizers) will caution that if the local government continues to prevent African Americans and poor community from attaining full rights-Then, they will sanction leadership and call out those leaders who act outside of public interest more aggressively.

Social Justice Organizers “Cry Out” in strong opposition against CHICAGO ALDERMAN’S CALL FOR POLICE ACCESS TO HIGH-POWERED WEAPONS

Posted on

For immediate Release: 

Assault-rifles-810x506

Social Justice Organizers “Cry Out” in strong opposition against

CHICAGO ALDERMAN’S CALL FOR POLICE ACCESS TO HIGH-POWERED WEAPONS

Press Briefing 


Monday, May 8. 2017at 12:00 Noon at 

Alderman Edward M. Burke-14th Ward Office: 

2650 W. 51st Street Chicago, IL 60632

*********************************************************************************

The police force is sworn to protect and defend citizens – in their view, it is, in fact, their duty to risk their lives to rescue children and others (and so they deserve our respect). But unless martial law is declared, where the civilian government admits it has lost control, any death at the hands of a police officer is at best an accident to be thoroughly investigated and at worst, murder to be treated as such. In a democratic society, police are not outside the law, they are citizens sworn to uphold the law, Police are not a military occupying force. As such, their use of weapons of lethal force is a bad statement for the community because it will usher a signal to the public that CPD regards the use of lethal force as an acceptable solution to problems so the public as the same right. That’s a dangerous standard!

For the record, a long gun is generally designed to be fired braced against the shoulder, in contrast to a handgun, but may include mounted firearms while in artillery a long gun would be contrasted with a howitzer.

The New Chicago Fraternal Order of Police President Kevin Graham said he wants more officers to be trained on how to use rifles and for the weapons to be available on the beat.

“I’m not looking for one in every car. I am looking for officers who are qualified to carry them to have them as another tool to address crime in our city, Graham said. “

“The police department has to begin thinking outside the box and get these officers certified so we can carry these weapons,” Alderman Ed Burke (14th Ward) said.

The questions we must ask ourselves. We could ask-Why would any police need an assault rifle and what communities would these weapons go into? The statement below is from one of the organizers of the Press Conference:

Chicago Police armed with “assault rifles,” horries our Black Communities.  CPD seeks to be judge, jury, and executioner with assault rifles. Given the recent DOJ Report which concluded a ‘Pattern of racial discrimination’ that has resulted in black and brown people being murdered with impunity and as of right now-no local consent decree is in place.’ To suggest that the CPD is on board with this is the height of irresponsibility, as CPD has already failed to respectfully engage the black community.         Eric Russell, President of Tree of Life Justice League of Illinois

For immediate Release: Social Justice Activist call for Accountability and Answers in the death of Shawn Brider and Kujuan Raye Press Conference at 6:30PM at Chicago Police Board Meeting (We will ask for the resignation of Eddie Johnson and The Mayor)

Posted on

This Ends Now!

For immediate Release: Social Justice Activist call for Accountability and Answers in the death of Shawn Brider and Kujuan Raye Press Conference at 6:30PM at Chicago Police Board Meeting

(We will ask for the resignation of Eddie Johnson and The Mayor)

Today April 20, 2017 –at 6:30 pm at Chicago Police HQ

 3510 S. Michigan Ave, Chicago. IL 60637

A group of civil rights activist said, Shawn Brider should have never been arrested Last Sunday night after falling asleep in a parked car with a child inside. The man was found dead about 4:30 a.m., the public was informed Brider had died in custody at the 3rd District lock-up.

Activist, strongly feel that Brider should never have been arrested on Sunday night for just merely falling asleep in a parked car even with a small child inside.  Activist and Briders family are questioning why Brider was taken into custody in the first place.
“He was just waiting for his girlfriend to come downstairs and he nodded off because he had been driving. They arrested him for that,” his Sister Kewonda Brider said.

Cook County Medical Examiner’s office has done an autopsy, but the results are pending more test results. Police are conducting a death investigation, and no further information has been made immediately available.

John Poulos’s Investigation for Kujaun Raye’s Murder

 

poulus2
SGT.JOHN D.POULOS

 

 

Officer John Poulos is the Chicago Police Sgt. who is accused of killing Kujaun Raye, has a long history of various corrective actions in his file, 6 cases which include two cases of false arrest. Yet and still this officer was commended for, “Officer of the Month” in April of 2015.

2015 John D. Poulos received an award for employee of the month for April 2015. Also, John had been promoted to Sgt and also an instructor in the Education & Training Division teaching L.E.M.A.R.T. (Law Enforcement Medical Aid & Rescue Training) as well worked in the 007th District during his career. The annual salary is $101,442. 

The investigation apparently went dormant because Poulos stayed off the job for another seven years, according to department sources.

Police Supt. Eddie Johnson has ordered an audit to determine why the 2004 investigation of Poulos’ possible ownership interest in a bar, a violation of department policy, has never been closed.

Owning or working at an establishment that sells alcohol is a firing offense, but Poulos went on disability shortly after the department’s Internal Affairs Division began looking at his ownership of a bar in 2004. The investigation apparently went dormant because Poulos stayed off the job for another seven years, according to department sources.

The still-open case was discovered when the department began investigation Poulos’ fatal shooting in November of 19-year-old Kajuan Raye, CPD spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said.

“The Black Community in Poor Chicago are systematically being worn down and worn out by the constant microaggressions, When a suspect is arrested for merely sleeping in a car, we would have to ask the question where is the accountability? Did Brider have to be arrested and taken to the district or could he have been ticked? Even in the Case of Kujuan Raye-The evidence is super compelling-it shows Sgt.John D. Poulos should have been fired, and the fact that with the lenghtly file he was promoted paints a picture of a Police Department that, is “out of touch.”

 

The Chicago Police Department is in urgent need of reform. While the problems are clear, the path to solutions is filled with controversy. Even after Chicago Police Department was sanctioned by federal investigators who found that officers routinely used excessive force against minorities and tolerated “racially discriminatory conduct” by officers we still are seeing widespread abuse and issues that could be routinely avoidable.”What needs to happen is the time has now come for a frank and insightful discussion of what it will take to achieve true police reform in Chicago.  We will now push harder for the city to reform its policing policy. If Chicago is to move beyond its community violence issues and distrust of Public Officials then our Mayor and possibly the chief have to go!
