Rekia Boyd’s Murderer Finally Charged

Today was truly a moment of truth for the Rekia Boyd family and our movement. From the very start we called this murder, a wanton and senseless murder of a young woman gunned down in the prime of her life by CPD Officer Dante Servin. For the first time in 15 years a Chicago police officer has been charged with shooting a civilian and that is truly incredible. While we dip our banners and acknowledge that Servin’s indictment is a victory, we also hasten to add that without a movement for justice for Rekia Boyd, Detective Servin would not have been charged with manslaughter.
