Young, Gifted & Black Coalition Expects Non-Indictment; Announcing Plans for Future Actions
Anticipating a continuation of historic and recent national trends, the Young, Gifted & Black Coalition (YGB). expects Dane County District Attorney Ismael Ozanne to announce his decision not to indict Madison police officer Matt Kenny for breaking into an apartment and shooting unarmed 19 year old Tony Robinson multiple times in response to a distress call for help.
The Young, Gifted & Black Coalition (YGB). are holding a community form and press conference tomorrow to announce their plans for the expected non-indictment and future actions. The press conference will be held on Friday, April 3, 2015
at the South Madison Partnership Space, located in the Villager Mall, at 2312 S. Park St., Madison, WI, beginning at 5:00pm.
“We don’t expect justice from Dane County, so we have to look elsewhere,” says lead organizer M Adams. “At the same time, we must think about this national trend beyond the borders of Dane County. We are trying to address both.”
YGB and Freedom, Inc. will lay out the next steps for the Justice for Tony Robinson campaign as well as appropriate responses for the young people who will be upset and disenchanted if there is no indictment.
