Chicago Activists Shut Down Police Board Meeting to Bring Rekia Boyd's Killer to Justice

Activists from Black Lives Matter, Black Youth Project 100, and We Charge Genocide shut down a Chicago Police Board meeting on Thursday night. The activists took action to demanded the firing of Detective Dante Servin, the officer who was acquitted in the fatal shooting of Rekia Boyd.

Boyd's brother, Martinez Sutton, spoke passionately about his sister's death and pleaded that Servin be fired.

"For three years, my family has been disrespected," Sutton said. "All I'm asking is that this officer be fired. Is that so hard?"
