Green Party of Ohio statement on police-involved killings

Cleveland, OH: The Green Party of Ohio abhors the recent killings by members of law enforcement that occurred in Baton Rouge, LA and St Paul. MN.

The deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile stand as but the latest stark reminder that, in the black community, there is a justifiable fear of law enforcement, as those charged with protecting and serving the public are all too often prone to use lethal force at the slightest provocation, or sometimes, with no provocation at all. Data shows that minority members of our society suffer disproportionately under our legal and penal system.

The Green Party demands justice after latest killings by police

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders expressed shock and revulsion after the killings of Alton Sterling in Baton Rouge, La., and Philando Castile in St. Paul, Minn., by police officers earlier this week, as well as sympathy for the victims' loved ones.

Greens have demanded justice for these and other incidents of police murders of black people, with vigorous prosecution of officers and investigation of police departments that tolerate racist and violent behavior. Green Party leaders are supporting proposals for a federal database that tracks police killings and denial of funding for police departments with a pattern of abuse.

Gadell-Newton is the anti-establishment candidate running for State Representative 18th District

If the 2016 election cycle of chaos has taught us anything, it’s that anti-establishment candidates are a future choice against the two political parties which have been entrenched for far too long.

Instead of holding their nose when they vote, progressives are turning away from the Democratic party. They are seeking candidates truly in line with their beliefs. Bernie Sanders, of course, has become the face of the left’s history-shattering movement. Unfortunately for conservatives, their predicament is flat-out disturbing.

No surprise is how this new-found focus for a true progressive is surging not just on a national level but locally, too.
