Kimani Gray was shot seven times by two NYPD undercover cops
-- thrice in the back -- on March 9th in Brooklyn. The officers who shot him have a record of violations of civil liberties
For five consecutive nights last week protests against this police murder have been held in New York City. The Justice 4 Alan Blueford Coalition calls for a rally in solidarity with these ongoing protests and against police brutality -- the same brutality which resulted in the death of Alan Blueford -- here in Oakland.
His mother spoke out a few days ago:
“Why was Kimani been murdered, and slaughtered? Why was Kimani begging for his life? Why was Kimani saying [those things] if he had a weapon? … He’s my angel, and my baby, and he was slaughtered, and I want to know why. After the first shot, why the second bullet, why the third bullet? … Just walk in my shoes, please, and understand my grief… I want justice, for his civil rights, for being an American citizen.”
Come join together in one voice on Thursday to tell the world that this must stop!
