Occupy the PGA and Benton Harbor PD May 24

For Immediate Release

May 24, Occupy the PGA event

Contact Rev. Edward Pinkney

Mass Demonstration to Protest the PGA Tournament and
the Benton Harbor Police Department 

The march against the Benton Harbor Police Department originally scheduled for March 1 was postponed until May 24 and combined with the Occupy the PGA annual event.
Karrington Penny must have Justice! 

A NUMBER OF groups, churches and community activists along with the Black Autonomy Network Community Organization (BANCO) will be protesting the Benton Harbor Police Department to represent the best interest of the community. The issues range from poor police service, destruction of the black family, and the extraordinarily high incarceration rate of black residents in Benton Harbor. The Benton Harbor Police Department is out of touch with the black community.

The Benton Harbor Police Department has targeted the black community and must quit endorsing destructive and unfair behavior by police officers.

The only word that can define the gross negligence of the Benton Harbor Police Department is betrayal.

The Benton Harbor Police Department is corrupt from the top to the bottom. We do not believe the police department has ever been concerned with serving and protecting black people in the community.

We demand Justice for Karrington Penny;
We demand a complete investigation of the murder of Karrington Penny;
We demand an investigation into the deaths of Timothy (Bulldog) Allen, Toby Williams, Edward Hurse, Dewayne Flowers, Eric McGinnis, and many others;
We demand the removal of Det. Wes Smigielski from Benton Harbor Police Department;
We demand the Benton Harbor Police Department be dissolved, because it does not serve the black community.
