(GRCAM: Waking Up Black America)

Police Code of Silence and the Stop Snitching Movement are both bad for the black community. I remember watching the evening news about the Jon Burge torture allegations which took place in the early 1980s, official investigations have responded to numerous allegations against former Commander Jon Burge, who has been accused of abusing more than two-hundred mostly African-American men from 1972 to 1991 in order to coerce confessions to crimes. Alleged victims claimed that Burge and his crew of detectives had them beaten, suffocated, burned, and electric shocks to their genitals.

In 1993, Burge was fired from the department, and is currently collecting his police pension. In summer 2006, special prosecutors completing a four-year investigation concluded that they had enough evidence to prove crimes against Burge and others, but “regrettably” could not bring charges because the statute of limitations had passed. In January 2008, the City Council approved a $19.8 million settlement with four men who claimed abuse by Burge and his men.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement will help try to break Police Code of Silence and the Stop Snitching Movement in order to improve the relationship between local police department and the black community. GRCAM will help educate the community to get our laws on the books known as “Community Rights” which will be compatible with the dominant culture. Our laws would protect our local residents and give the community a voice and those affected by bias in the current system. We will hold both Rogue Cops and Urban Terrorist accountable for their actions in a constructive manner. We will form cooperative alliance beyond the black community so that this organization can be diverse for all people of Chicago and surrounding suburbs of Chicago. GRCAM is about presenting bottom up solutions from the community level.
