CPR Change the NYPD said today, “After years of organizing across New York City and New York State, Communities United for Police Reform (CPR) celebrated the passage of a series of three bills collectively called the Safer NY Act that together increase police transparency and help increase accountability around New Yorkers’ most common encounters with police. The three bills – the Police STAT Act, the repeal of 50-a and now the passage of a special prosecutor – collectively represent the first real step in a generation toward realizing the day New Yorkers no longer have to fear the police.

The NYPD’s budget is $6,000,000,000. Protestors want NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio to defund the NYPD.

NYC Anti-Violence Project says, “NYPD’s $6B budget has been growing for years, but enough is enough. Join us this Friday (June 12, 2020) @ 6 PM, to learn more about how the city can divert funding from policing into resources for our communities. Join the fight! Click here to register.

Protestors in Seattle, washington have an autonomous zone. They have different demands: The Justice System, Health and Human Services, Economics, and Education. “Although we have liberated Free Capitol Hill in the name of the people of Seattle, we must not forget that we stand on land already once stolen from the Duwamish People, the first people of Seattle, and whose brother, John T. Williams of the Nuu-chah-nulth tribe up north was murdered by the Seattle Police Department 10 years ago,” say the _Collective Black Voices

Jake Johnson writes on commondreams.org, “Philonise Floyd, the younger brother of George Floyd, implored Congress in emotional testimony Wednesday to heed “the calls ringing out in the streets across the world” and take meaningful action against police brutality and racial injustice in the United States.

“If his death ends up changing the world for the better, and I think it will, then he died as he lived. It is on you to make sure his death is not in vain.” —Philonise Floyd”George called for help and he was ignored,” Philonise said during a House Judiciary Committee hearing. “Please listen to the calls I’m making to you now. To the calls of our family… People of all backgrounds, genders and races have come together to demand change. Honor them, honor George, and make the necessary changes that make law enforcement the solution—and not the problem.”

Thomas Lane, one of the officers that killed George Floyd, has been released on bail. His bail was set for $1m.

A few days ago someone asked me why people are still protesting. Some people think the protests are only about George Floyd. Police officers have killed many other people.

Almost three months after Breonna Taylor was killed in her own home by police officers, the Louisville police released an incident report that lists injures as “none”. The Courier Journal obtained a copy of the report. People want officers that killed Breonna to be arrested.

Manuel Ellis, a Black man died more than three months ago in police custody. Governor Jay Inslee of Washington ordered a new investigation into the death of Manuel. Lawyer for the Ellis family released footage from the night of his death. The video shows Manuel screaming, “I can’t breathe sir. I can’t breathe.” Ellis’s death was ruled a homicide.

Dominic Bradley and Sarah Katz write on The Guardian, “What do Sandra Bland, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tanisha Anderson, Deborah Danner, Ezell Ford, Alfred Olango and Keith Lamont Scott all have in common? They were all black Americans who died at the hands of the police or in police custody. And they were all also disabled.”

Javier Ambler and Antonio Valenzuela are two other men killed by police officers in the United States of America.

Oliver Milman says on The Guardian, “”Details of two more instances of deaths at the hands of police in the US have come to light as a result of videos surfacing, placing further scrutiny on US law enforcement conduct as protests continue around the world sparked by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month after a police officer knelt on his neck.”

Howie Hawkins says on Twitter, “Another good resource for putting together your community’s demands is the Vera Institute of Justice’s Arrest Trends resource. What exactly are police doing? How successful are they at solving cases? What crimes are they focusing on? Check out the data at https://arresttrends.vera.org
