Chicago, IL On September 22, 2017 at 11:00 a.m-Freedom First International (FFI) is organizing a Protest Rally and Media Briefing, with Violence Interrupters various activist community groups. On group is demanding the instant removal of District 11 Chicago Police Sgt. George Granias who allegedly beat Patassa Johnson while she was in handcuffs, at the 11th District Station.
Reports later showed that Granias owned several web domains with highly offensive racist tiles such as “NiggerDown.Com.” CBS 2 reported the altercation occurred in the 11th District police station in 2014. Johnson, a medical assistant, was driving home on a Chicago expressway when she was pulled over by a state trooper for allegedly driving drunk.
The activist are intent on bringing attention the fact that with Chicago PD many officers have avoid punishment or even suspensions because the grievance process is slow and complicated, and also because the number of grievances has surged. Add to those issues that the office fails to efficiently track cases — and it can wait for years for the police union to file grievance-related paperwork.
Bishop Gregg L. Greer of Freedom First International stated, “In Chicago the police accountability system is widely seen as dysfunctional, ” This must change that is why we are now calling attention to this case-because Sgt. Granias has completely violated public trust-and has yet to be terminated, this fact also adds insult to injury.”
The group believes racist attitudes of police officers become emblematic rather than exceptional.

* The Freedom First International has written an open letter (below) dated 9/21/17 to Wilber Wright College asking for Granias removal as Professor.
