PRESS CONFERENCE/COURT HOUSE RALLY
JOIN US ON THE STEPS OF THE MANHATTAN SUPREME COURT
IN SUPPORT OF HARLEM COMMUNITY ACTIVIST JOSEPH “JAZZ” HAYDEN
A LONGSTANDING MONITOR OF POLICE CONDUCT AND THE RECENT VICTIM OF AN ILLEGAL STOP AND FRISK AND RETALIATORY ARREST AND CHALLENGING NYPD POLICE MISCONDUCT IN OUR COMMUNITIES
THURSDAY, JANUARY 19, 2012
100 CENTRE STREET
On Friday, December 2, 2011 Bro. Jazz Hayden was stopped in Harlem for an alleged traffic violation and when he was pulled over, the cops stated, “We Know You” because they were the very SAME cops he had filmed during the below cop watch of a stop and frisk over the summer:
The cops then proceeded to ILLEGALLY search his car and arrested him for a PEN KNIFE. This is completely outrageous – there’s nothing remotely illegal about carrying a pen knife. Jazz was then held captive for nearly 48 hours and finally released on his own recognizance after the judge denied the DA’s attempts to have him post bail.
This is of course just the latest example of both the out-of-control racial profiling and stop and frisk tactics of the NYPD and; its targeting of Anti-Police Terror Activists like Bro. Jazz and most recently Bro. Shaka Shakur & Bro. Bullwhip.
The Pigs seriously need to understand that when they screw with ONE OF US then they are screwing with ALL OF US!
