July 29, 2016–Hats off to the Anti-Racist Collective (ARC) from The Coalition Against Police Crimes and Repression. We support your campaign to remove Jeff Roorda from his position as business manager of the St. Louis Police Officers’ Association (SLPOA). His divisive rants in the media only set back the cause of achieving racial justice in this country.
As long as the SLPOA retains him, we’re with ARC in assuming that the SLPOA represents a culture of policing which never should have been and whose time has clearly passed.
We encourage candidates to reject SLPOA endorsements while Roorda holds his position. And we appreciate those candidates publicly calling for his dismissal.
