Beginning with an April 5th demonstration, BMC has helped lead a series of street actions, press events and press statements designed to demand Justice for Saheed and to correct the narrative being spun by the NYPD. Along with Saheed’s family and Communities United for Police Reform (CPR), BMC is demanding:
- a release of all of the video footage of the incident
- the names and disciplinary records of the officers involved in Saheed's killing; and
- an explanation of why the SRG police unit - designed to respond to civil unrest and terrorist incidents - was deployed.
