Alliance charges Chicago police crimes before UNHCR

The Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression
Submits Document on Police Crimes to UNHRC

For information contact Frank Chapman (cell 312-513-3795) or Ted Pearson (312-927-2689)

In December 2012, the Chicago Alliance Against Racist & Political Repression (CAARPR) submitted a document to the UN Human Rights Commission that was approved for consideration in Geneva in March, 2013. The document describes the torture and murder of civilians by police officers. In 2011, 23 people were killed by police officers, 80% of whom were African American.[i] The Alliance document can be found here: http://www2.ohchr.org/English/bodies/hrc/docs/NGOs/15-USHRNetwork_ChicagoAllianceAgainstRacist_and_Political_Repression.pdf

The CAARPR has addressed city and state officials on several occasions. The issue of police crimes and police torture is becoming an increasing pandemic nation-wide. The Alliance is trying to have a Civilian Police Accountability Council elected that will have power to prosecute police officers who commit crimes.

This may be the first time ever that the issue has been brought up internationally. Frank Chapman, Chairperson of the CAARPR Organizing Committee to Stop Police Crimes, said “We are making history by having this document reviewed by the UNHRC, and are making huge steps in the campaign for CPAC.”
