On August 4 of last year, Toronto police responded to a call around a
'disturbance' outside a donut shop on Albion Road in the North-West
Toronto community of Rexdale. As they pulled up, people on the scene
scattered. One young man, Jama Jama, however, followed their instructions
to stay where he was. He was grabbed, beaten badly, then charged with
assault police and causing a disturbance.
What the police did not know was that another person was making a video of
the whole incident as it unfolded. It is clear that Jama was beaten
without any possible justification and, contrary to the police account,
was clearly unhurt before his interaction with them began.

Since the beating, Jama has refused to stay silent. He has been speaking
out about what happened to him and about the reality of policing in his

On February 16, Jama has his next court appearance on this matter. His
community supporters are demanding that these outrageous and totally
unjustified charges be dropped at that time.

Close to 400 signatures were delivered to the Head Crown Attorney this
week, collected by and from Jama's community in Rexdale. Add your voice to
the call for the charges to be dropped by writing or calling the Crown
Attorney's Office. And come out to court next week to support.
