Meeting about Goodwater Court Shooting Feb 19 at 6 pm

On Feb. 19, 2011 at 6 p.m. St. James AME Church will hold a public meeting to discuss the shooting of an unarmed man with a broken hip using crutches to walk by a police officer in Goodwater. I have helped to organize this meeting and spent most of the morning in Goodwater talking to eyewitnesses, local residents and clergy. I will be one of the speakers at the meeting tomorrow night as will the eye witness who saw the whole thing from the row in court, and Mr. Bernard Simelton President of the NAACP will be in attendance with some other members of his group. The ACLU is also going to try and send a representative. A lot of media should be in attendance as well.

What is happening and has been happening in Goodwater, AL for a long time needs to stop and stop now. If you believe that injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere then I hope you will attend this meeting tomorrow night. Here is the Google Map of how to get there.,+AL&cid=8962289816838416940
