We the undersigned faculty, students and staff of Roxbury Community College are outraged to see a youth treated in a dehumanizing manner on our campus, as happened on October 22nd 2010.

We found the approach that the police officers utilized to be disrespectful to the institution, its students, its faculty, and the larger community.

We therefore demand:

1. A formal apology to the entire Roxbury Community College faculty, students, and staff from Commissioner Edward F. Davis.

2. A formal apology to the family of the victim from Commissioner Edward F. Davis

3. The permanent termination, from law enforcement, of the police officers who abused their power during the incident.


  • Jessica ” When those elected to protect the people that are paid by the people's money abuse their power and unreasonably harm and intimidate those whom they are sworn to protect at escalating levels throughout the country, even as we speak , it is clear to me that something must be done.”
