They also want the family of Michael Brown to be “completely compensated” for the “wrongful death” of their son.
Via the Young Communists website:
This is a statement of solidarity with the family of Michael Brown and the residents of Ferguson County, Missouri.
We in the Young Communist League, USA fiercely condemn the murder of Michael Brown by police officer Darren Wilson.
We demand that Officer Wilson be immediately removed from paid leave, terminated from his position in the police force, and criminally charged for the murder of Michael Brown.
We demand that the family of Michael Brown be completely compensated for the wrongful death of their son.
We demand that commercial media outlets cease to describe the neighbors and community in Ferguson as an “angry mob”, and that the police department of Ferguson end its military-style occupation of Ferguson neighborhoods.
Police brutality is a pervasive problem in the United States. There is a genocide occurring on people of color in this country through police brutality. Thousands of incidents of this brutality, fueled by racism, go un-reported each year. The incidents that have been reported are rarely resolved in a way that brings justice to victims and their families. White working people are affected by police crimes as well. Incidents of police brutality are higher in working class communities.
We demand that the widespread brutalization of people of color by police be federally investigated and addressed. Compensation for hospital fees, funeral services, legal services, and other related expenses should be made federally available to victims of police brutality and their families.
