100 Blacks In Law Enforcement Who Care Press Release 

AFTER BIAS ATTACK OF BLACK AND HISPANIC YOUTH- LAW ENFORCEMENT GROUPS AND  

 For Immediate Release Press Briefing100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care joined by the National Latino Officers Association, along with victims of bias crimes and their families will take part in a walking tour of Oceanside, Long Island.  The walking tour is in response to the continued criminal prosecution of bias assault victim Aloysius Staton and the unprovoked, un-prosecuted attack of Oswaldo Rivero.  In addition to the videotaped unprovoked bias related assault of both Mr. Staton and Mr. Rivero, there have been several other unreported bias incidents in the Oceanside community.  After the September 18th press conference regarding the Staton-Olivero incident, it was reported on MY9   News that reporter Nicole Johnson (who is Black), also faced racial hostilility in Oceanside while reporting on the facts of the initial bias attack100 Blacks in Law Enforcement Who Care co-founder Marq Claxton states, “This level of ignorance and racial intolerance cannot be ignored. We have an obligation to defend Aloysius Staton against subjective criminal prosecution and the Constitution offers protection from bigots who attempt to create geographic or social boundaries.”  National Latino Officers Association chairman Anthony Miranda states, “The danger of allowing this type of racist cancer to fester is that it will poison those who are in close proximity to it.  This community has an obligation to affirmatively address the very serious allegations of racial intolerance and violence.”  New York State Senator Eric Adams states, “We cannot allow the actions of a few hate filled individuals to destroy the quality of life for the everyone else.  We must respond to racial intolerance anywhere it rears its ugly head.  The arrest and prosecution of Aloysius Staton defies logic and taints justice.  If we do not commit to protect ALL people from the threat of racism, we betray the legacy of the civil rights movement.”
