Does City Councilman Wengay Netwon really believe the police “terrorize” the community?  Does Wengay Newton want Bill Foster and Chuck Harmon to resign?

These are questions Newton should have to answer since he is linked with a promotion for the “Black Community Convention” partially sponsored by, not surprisingly, the Uhurus.

The organizers of the event Councilman Newtwon will be attending this weekend write:

“The police terrorize our communities like an occupying army, profiling and arresting our young people for no reason.”


“We will be able to demand an investigation into the Lacy killing and illegal house destruction issue, call for the resignation and investigation of Chief Harmon and Mayor Foster for their roles in the Lacy murder, and demand  the rehiring of Goliath Davis – during whose 8 years as chief of police we suffered not a single black death at the hands of police.”

Are these the policy positions with which Councilman Newton wishes to associate?
