How do stop the Chicago police from terrorizing our neighborhoods, from racial profiling, torturing and murdering our communities? …By demanding a systemic change, by demanding community control of the police where cops are held accountable for their crimes, and communities decide and control how they are policed. How do we get their? … By fighting for an all elected all Civilian Police Accountability Council (CPAC).
