We demand that Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly resigns.

We demand jail time - for this man and others like him. We demand that no blue-collar police is charged for the crimes of their supervisor.
We demand that Mayor Bloomberg address our General Assembly and apologize for what has occurred.
A message to blue-collar police: Do not do what you are told. We are peaceful and you know this. We offer you coffee in the morning and water in the day. You always refuse and we know that’s because they told you to. Speak of the crimes of your supervisors. We will help you. We are expressing the same frustration that you feel. You are the 99 percent. Join us. Join our conversation.
