WHAT HAPPENED: On April 3, 2015 an unarmed, 22 year old Tyree Carroll was stopped across from his grandmother’s house in the Germantown section of Philadelphia for riding his bike the wrong way on a one way street. What started with 3 white officers ended in as many as 26 officers involved or watching in this Rodney King style beating. He was kicked, hit with a nightstick, threatened with a taser, called a piece of sh** and other obscenities as more police arrived. Tyree suffers from asthma and fearing for his ability to breathe like with Eric Garner and for his life, he defended himself from officers who were choking him. Fortunately, a neighbor recorded a video, where Tyree can be heard screaming for his grandmom to come to the door. It is an outrage as the Fraternal Order of Police has called this incident “good policing”. We all know this kind of abuse goes on all too often, but it just so happens that this one, like Rodney King in LA, was caught on camera. Come protest, demand justice for Tyree Carroll and his family and for an end to police brutality in our communities.
