CODEPINK Condemns Decision Not to Indict Darren Wilson – CODEPINK

“It has been said that ‘a prosecutor can indict a ham sandwich,’” said Nathan Sheard, the leader of CODEPINK’s campaign to demilitarize the police. “But what has been proven today in St. Louis County, as it was weeks ago in Ohio, is that what cannot be indicted is a police officer who has killed a black person in the United States.”

“Today’s announcement presents the true face of injustice today in America, an America that wears a false mask of ‘post-racial’,” said CODEPINK’s Sophia Armen. “As people of color and allies, it is time to see the ‘justice’ system as not broken or corrupt, but functioning in the service of the elite few. We must demand deeply rooted changes in America’s system and in the consciousness of the American public. Only then will we see true justice.”

CODEPINK, a group known for its actions against wars abroad, is also working on police brutality at home. The group has been on the ground in Ferguson and has been joining solidarity actions around the country against police brutality. “The police have essentially become occupying armies with equipment designed for war,” said CODEPINK co-founder Jodie Evans, who has been working closely with the group Hands Up United in Ferguson, Missouri. “Who is their enemy? Local young men? Peaceful protesters? This is not just an attack on Ferguson, but an attack on us all.”
