Occupy Pittsburgh To Rally In Support Of Jordan Miles
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Occupy Pittsburgh movement is taking up a different cause today.
The group, along with members of the Alliance for Police Accountability, plan to stage a march and protest this afternoon.
The group will take their message to the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office where they say they will rally to support Jordan Miles.
In January of 2010, Miles suffered severe injuries from an alleged encounter with three plain-clothes Pittsburgh police officers. The officers claimed Miles refused to cooperate during a drug investigation, but charges were dropped against Miles.
Back in June, local, state and national leaders from the NAACP along with other community groups asked Allegheny County District Attorney Stephen Zappala to bring charges against the three officers.
