Justice for Mohamed Bah Killed by NYPD Officers Who Shot Him 10 Times
Justice for Mohamed Bah
Guinean student killed when New York police shot him 10 times in his apartment
Join Guineans and Guinean associations at 1 Hogan Place (train6, N, Q, J, Z to Canal Street) on Monday, March 25, 2013 at 12:00 PM for a rally: “Justice for Mohamed BAH.”
Guineans and Guinean associations and the Bah Family need your support to request the Prosecutor in Manhattan to respect, enforce the law and recognize that police officers are accountable for their action such as those which caused the death of Mr. Mohamed Djan BAH.
On 25 September 2012, after a call to Emergency Services for an ambulance to take Mohamed Bah Djan to the hospital, the New York police department responded to the call from the family’s apartment and broke through the doo of Mohamed Bah’s apartment. The police shot Bah a total of 10 times and would not provide information to the family as to what was happening. Family members, including his mother, were being kept away from the scene and driven around in a police cruiser.
Before being killed, Mohamed Bah Djan refused to let the officers into his apartment telling them they had the wrong address and that he was sick and wanted to rest. He did not expect the police to show up because he had not committed a crime. Neither could he have foreseen that they would break his door down and kill him in cold blood.
To shoot an innocent man ten times in his apartment is a criminal act. The badge should protect the people and not the police when they behave in a criminal manner. We also have the right to be protected by law!
We ask all women and all men who love peace and justice to come to support the Bah Family in the fight for justice for their child arbitrarily killed by police in his apartment where he should have been at his most secure under the rule of law in the United States.
Guineans and Guinean associations and the Bah Family.
