Rally about Jordan Miles case is June 12, 2010

One page brochure to rally in PDF.

Text of brochure:

Jordan Miles, in a photo released by his mother
after Pittsburgh police brutally assaulted him.

On January 12th, plain-clothes police officers
Richard Ewing, Michael Saldutte and David
Sisak brutally beat Jordan Miles, a CAPA
honors student and viola player. On March
19th, Ewing, Saldutte and Sisak were
awarded commendations by the Pittsburgh
Police Bureau.
The officers involved claim that Jordan was
carrying something heavy and resisted arrest.
Considering that the three officers were not
wearing uniforms and were driving an unmarked
vehicle, his desire to escape was
more than justified. Jordan Miles’ only crime
was being a black teenager in Homewood.

Join us to demand:
Prosecute Richard Ewing, Michael Saldutte and David Sisak!
End racial profiling and police brutality!
Community control of the police force!

Issued by the Alliance for Police Accountability

While Jordan is one of the most recent victims, any one of us could be next. People
across communities need to stand up and demand an end to police brutality. On June
12th, let’s make it clear that racist attacks on Pittsburgh’s youth by those who are paid
to protect us will not go unanswered in a system that demands equality for all!
