Justice for Jordan Miles
There was no concern for the safety of 18-year-old Miles on Jan. 12. Late that evening, the young Black honors student was walking to his grandmother’s home when three plainclothes police officers jumped out of a white car and viciously attacked him. The officers involved — Richard Ewing, David Sisak and Michael Saldutte — are now essentially on paid vacation. And even though Jordan Miles, an honor student who plays the viola, broke no laws and committed no crimes, the Federal Government decided not to prosecute the 3 undercover Pittsburgh Police officers who savagely beat him. To add insult to injury, Pittsburgh’s Mayor and Police Chief immediately reinstated the 3 officers without so much as a apology. An outraged Pittsburgh community called for an emergency protest to pressure the local District Attorney to prosecute these officers to the fullest extent of the law. Protest the Department of Justice’s refusal to prosecute police officers Ewing, Saldutte, andSisak!Demand D.A. Zappala prosecute the three officers! Demand the City of Pittsburgh fire the three officers!Demand the Office of Municipal Investigations release its buried report! The people of Pittsburgh deserve to be able to live without fear of the police and a federal and municipal system that refuses to make officers accountable when obvious police brutality is taking place!
