City of Brotherly Love, Sisterly Hate?

What the hell is the problem with the Philadelphia Police Department?

The police covered up the events that led to the murder of Nizah Morris in December of 2002. The city settled in a federal lawsuit that alleged that police and rescue workers contributed to her death.

On March March 21, 2007, (according to witness accounts) Roland Bottom repeatedly ran over Erica Keel after ejecting her from his car. A medical examiner’s report supports these accounts, classifying it as a a “hit-and-run accident.”

A spokesperson for the district attorneys office said “I’m not at liberty to discuss any of the evidence, because it’s an open investigation.” But police spokesman, Officer Raul Malveiro said that “He (Bottom) didn’t break any law, so his license wouldn’t be suspended.”

If there is no crime, then why is there still an open investigation?

A demonstration is being planned. For more information contact Savannah: 267-879-1339

H/T to Timothy Cwiek of Philadelphia Gay News. Timothy repeatedly reported on the Nizah Morris case. I posted his Radical Trannies interview with Timothy Cwiek here.
