**ALL DAY MONDAY, JANUARY 7TH**
Call CT Chief State’s Attorney and demand Jewu Richardson’s charges be dropped! Request Kevin Kane, Chief States Attorney. You don’t need to be from New Haven or CT to call.
Call 860-258-5800 and say,
I am calling to demand that the state’s attorney’s office of Connecticut drop all charges against Jewu Richardson of New Haven,CT.
The case against Mr. Richardson is made up of largely fabricated charges. Mr. Richardson’s history with the NHPD and the New Haven judicial system demonstrates a clear pattern of criminal abuse and cover-ups perpetrated against Mr. Richardson. Jewu Richardson has been brutalized, blackmailed, falsely imprisoned, denied his constitutional rights, illegally chased, and shot by the NHPD, but the NHPD has not been held accountable for any of these crimes.
It is impossible for Mr. Richardson to receive a fair trial. The NHPD has destroyed key evidence, and the judge who will be trying the case, Maureen Keegan, is the same judge who in 2006 denied Mr. Richardson his constitutional right to trial. We are becoming increasingly aware of this miscarriage of justice and we demand that this case be dropped now.

Jewu Richardson is an innocent man and survivor of police brutality who is facing 30 years in prison in a quickly approaching trial. He is being falsely charged with assault on a police officer after being chased, shot by the police inches from his heart, beaten and jailed with the bullet still lodged in his chest. Jewu’s passengers were also assaulted but never charged with any crime. Key evidence has been destroyed, including the vehicle Jewu is accused of assaulting the officer with.
Now he has the burden of proving himself innocent against charges fabricated by the New Haven Police Department in order to cover up their 13 year history of criminally targeting Jewu with no penalty. He also has the burden of proving himself innocent in the same judicial system that denied him his constitutional right to trial in 2006, when Judge Maureen Keegan, the prosecution, and Jewu’s own public defender aided the NHPD in covering up their crimes against him. Conveniently, Maureen Keegan will be trying Jewu’s current case.
