Rainbow PUSH Coalition joins fight to release police tapes


The fight to release the police tapes that former police chief Darryl Boykins lost his job over just got a national boost. Reverend Jesse Jackson's group, the Rainbow PUSH Coalition, will be coming to South Bend this Friday, May 18th.

The Coalition will be joining community activists Mario Sims, and Sam Brown at a community briefing held by Apostle Wille Coates at the Emmanuel Community Church from 12:30 PM to 1:30 PM.

Sims released this in a statement:

"This intolerable situation must end. United in one voice, we will let the Mayor know it is up to

us, the people, to decide what should be done about the content of the tapes. We will peacefully demonstrate, talk, file the appropriate requests, call on elected officials and organizations,
organize and inform the public, and utilize all legal means, including impeachment, until we make it happen. It's time for us to unite. It's time for the Mayor to listen."
