Justice for LaTanya Haggerty!

Support the Press Conference Thursday Morning to Protest the Hearings for Re-hiring a Cop who Participated in the Murder of LaTanya Haggerty.
Justice for LaTanya Haggerty!
Jail the Cops that Killed Her, Don’t Rehire Them!
On Thursday, October 24 the Police Board will begin a new hearing in the case of Michael Williams, who was fired as a result of his participation in the murder of LaTanya Haggerty. It is possible that Williams’ firing will be overturned as a result of this hearing. This is outrageous, and is another example of how, post-9/11, murderous police have been rehabilitated under the slogan that now “all police are heroes.” We say that brutal police are not heroes!
The firing of the four cops who murdered LaTanya Haggerty was the result of weeks of protests and outrage at the police murder of Haggerty and Robert Russ. Now, the powers that be think that the climate is right to reverse this victory. We must make it loud and clear to them that we will not be silent and let them re-hire these murdering thugs.

A Press Conference Will Be Held at 9:30 am on Thursday, October 24 outside 69 W. Washington. All those who stand on the side of justice are invited to come and support this press conference.

For more information, call (773) 528-1701.
