REMEMBERING REKIA BOYD BY VOTING A CHICAGO PROSECUTOR OUT OF A JOB


BLACK WOMEN
ROCKED THE VOTE IN CHICAGO

THEY DID NOT FORGET 

REKIA BOYD 
OR 
LAQUAN McDONALD


PROSECUTOR ANITA ALVAREZ 
TO BE GIVEN THE BOOT


Left: Rekia Boyd and Laquan McDonald
Right: The people that took down the prosecutor that failed Chicago

When a Chicago judge dismissed the charges against Police Officer Dante Servin for the death of Rekia Boyd when Servin...

- shot her over his shoulder

- killed her while off duty, 
- with an unregistered weapon, 
- over what began as a noise complaint

The judge stated that the reason for the dismissal was that the prosecutor, Anita Alvarez, presented murder evidence that did NOT match her manslaughter charge.  At the time of this judicial fiasco, Chicago hadn't prosecuted a police officer in at least 17 years.

Later, Alvarez would state that she struggled with whether Servin should be charged at all

  

This same prosecutor, Anita Alvarez did NOT charge Officer Jason Van Dyke with murder UNTIL AFTER Cook County Judge Franklin Valderrama made the video of Laquan McDonald's murder public.


Obviously, Prosecutor Anita Alvarez's hadn't heard that
Black Live Matter. But NOW she knows that Black Votes Matter. She was voted right out of a job.



COUNT THIS AS ANOTHER
BLACK LIVES MATTER VICTORY!!
