Where: In front of the Manhattan Criminal Court building at 100 Centre Street.
How:Public Transportation Directions: Take the No. 4 or 5 train to the Brooklyn Bridge Station; the C, N, R, 6 train to Canal Street; the 1 train to Franklin Street. Take the 1, 6 or 15 bus line.
Why: Because the amount of evidence against the officers in this case was overwhelming. Because raping a drunk women while on patrol is more than “official misconduct”. Because calling 911 should not be an invitation to be raped. Because NO behavior, including being drunk, is an invitation to be raped. Beccause rapists do not deserve the protection of our tax-funded police department and city officials. Because the people of NYC will not accept victim-blaming, cronyism, and a culture of silence that allows rapists to roam free, without consequence.
