Four Asian Americans Assaulted by Quincy Police

In the early hours of Sunday morning, April 30th, Chinese Progressive Association
organizer Karen Chen and three of her friends were assaulted by the Quincy police, while
coming home from a traditional engagement party. All are young Chinese Americans.

While legally parked by the curb next to Super 88 supermarket, they were approached by a
state trooper. As they talked with the state trooper, a Quincy police car pulled up. Without
warning, a police officer jumped out and pepper-sprayed three of them directly in the eyes
at close range. Karen, who is just over five feet tall was then tackled by three male
officers; receiving a black eye, a swollen face, and bruises from the attack. Another friend
was knocked unconscious.

Throughout the incident, the police repeatedly yelled at the victims, used profanities, and
called them names. Four innocent Asian Americans were taken to the police station in
handcuffs and falsely charged with resisting arrest and/or disorderly conduct.

More than 150 people attended the first community meeting that was held on May 21st.
Since that first meeting, Karen Chen and Joanna Ng, who witnessed the incident, have filed
formal complaints with the Quincy Police Department about the police misconduct. The city
has requested an FBI investigation, but we still want an open and public investigation, not
only a secret review by another law enforcement agency.

Attend the pre-trial hearing where the Quincy 4 are being falsely charged. We will monitor
the proceedings and show support for the victims. The community must demand
accountability!

               為正義﹐站起來﹗
           四位亞裔青年被昆士警察無故毆打
            為他們討回公道,請來參加聆聽
           上午九時 – 九月十四日(星期四)
   在四月三十日凌晨,華人前進會組織者陳玉珍和三位朋友﹐在參加朋友的過大禮慶祝會回家的路
   上﹐被昆士警察無故毆打。全部四位都是亞裔年青人﹐另有兩人目擊整個過程。
   當他們在88超市路旁跟州警察談話時,一名昆士警察突然出現,一言不說便向陳玉珍等三人的眼
   和面部直接噴胡椒霧濟。隨後,三名警察從後襲擊才五尺高的陳玉珍,撞傷她的眼部﹑頭部及面
   部。另一位朋友被警察打至昏迷。
   在整個過程中,警察們不停用污言穢語辱罵幾位受害者。及後﹐警察將四人鎖上手扣﹐用囚車押
   到警察局。現在警察更對四人刑事起訴﹐控以擾亂和拒捕的罪名。如果被判有罪﹐他們有可能要
   坐監﹐最高刑期是兩年半及罰款﹐留有的案底更會毀壞他們一生的前途。
   在5月21日的首次社區會議,超過150人出席。此後,陳玉珍和另一個目擊者Joanna Ng,正式向昆
   士警察局提出內部投訴。目前﹐昆士市長已將投訴轉交聯邦密探調查﹔但是,我們仍堅持要有一個
   公開及有高透明度的調查﹐而不是由一個警隊去秘密調查另一個警隊.
   我們希望你可以聯絡昆士市長,洛福郡檢察官,和警務處長表示你對這事的關注。四位受害者會
   在九月十四日到昆士地方法院再次出庭, 我們希望你可以出席表示你對他們的支持.

    參加此四名青年被起訴的初審,可監察聆聽過程及表示支持這些受害者,社區要求有關
                   部門向公眾負責!
                                          撤銷對四人的起訴
