As is the norm by police, before the Adam Toledo video was released, CPD claimed Toledo had pointed a gun at police. As is the norm, they lied. In the disturbing video finally released yesterday, teenager Adam Toledo is seen turning toward the police officer that was chasing him, raising his empty hands in compliance with the officer’s orders, and then getting shot in the chest. He was killed by Chicago police.
Today, Friday, April 16, communities are coming together in Logan Square Park to seek justice for Adam and all victims of police violence. The meet-up is at 5:30 p.m. at 3150 W. Logan Boulevard (60647). We will update our website and social media pages as more community meet-ups are organized.
