On Dec 29, just after midnight, our dear comrade Mike Siviwe Elliot was falsely arrested and held by Metra Police and CPD. Metra police were brutalizing a young woman on a Metra train that night, Mike was recording this abuse–they then arrested and charged him with battery and reckless conduct!Here is Mike Siviwe Elliot’s summation of the proceedings at court on Jan 20, 2016
Here is Mike Siviwe Elliot’s summation of the proceedings at court on Jan 20, 2016
“1) They agreed to return my phone, the judge issued an ‘order of release’ to the Metra police, but when I took it to them to retrieve my phone, the assigned officer was “not in” ? So I still didn’t get my phone back.
3) The Metra cop that arrested me, Officer Carr (badge # 9718) had been instructed at our last court date, that he would not be needed today, but he came anyway. He even had the nerve to speak to me, after filing false charges against me? Why was he there anyway, really?
4) My supporters were magnificent again! Unfortunately, it was a very small courtroom and none of them were allowed to enter, even though some seats were available. A beautiful crowd of about 30-people greeted me when I left out the courtroom. I got tons of hugs!
The struggle continues…”
