June 7 is National CAPHPACH DAY or #CAPHPACHDAY (pronounced cap°pack) and we’re celebrating in a huge way! #CAPHPACHDAY is a day of solidarity ‘promoting mutual respect between police and citizens,’ and raising awareness of the imperativeness to eradicate both police-citizen harassment and citizen-police harassment where it exists. CAPHPACH is an acronym for Citizens Against Police Harassment, Police Against Citizen Harassment, and the date of #CAPHPACHDAY-6.7-means positive progress and advancement-precisely what National CAPHPACHDAY embodies.
This year, On this Inaugural National CAPHPACH Day 2021, #CAPHPACHDAY founder, Global Leader, Equality Advocate, and KNEEOFFMYNECK Movement founder Greshun De Bouse offers commendation to a few officers within the Eastpointe, MI police Department. Recently, the city of Eastpointe, MI garnered widespread media attention when on May 27, 2021 one of its residents publicly alleged she was wrongfully ticketed $385 for ‘Public Nuisance’ by the Eastpointe Police Department for walking up and down the street on which she lived, talking on her telephone. National CAPHPACH Day founder, Greshun De Bouse says after reviewing the video footage sent to her of the incident, she would like to offer public commendation to the officers called to the scene of the incident on this inaugural National CAPHPACH Day. When asked why, she says this.
While #CAPHPACHDAY is nationwide, I was moved by recent footage sent to me concerning the very recent ‘Public Nuisance’ incident in Eastpointe, MI, and chose to focus here for #CAPHPACHDAY 2021. After reviewing the video footage sent to me, I would like to offer commendation for officers on the scene. I am not placing blame on any party involved. I am only speaking on the behavior of the officers I observed in this situation, and I can not attest to any other situation or matter involving Eastpointe PD.
As an Equality Advocate who has worked with and observed actions of law enforcement all over the nation, I can say I believe the officers called to the scene behaved calmly, kept their distance from the young lady ticketed, I did not hear or observe them shout or make aggressive gestures, they made no arrest, and they appeared to have behaved conducive to diffusing what could have been a potentially hostile situation. In addition as #KNEEOFFMYNECK Movement founder whose followers seek peaceful resolve to and accountability for police race-based brutality, In the Eastpointe, MI ‘Public Nuisance’ situation, I observed no police brutality or racism. For this, I commend these particular officers within the Eastpointe PD on this Inaugural National CAPHPACH Day.
We all can respect Greshun De Bouse for promoting positivity, peace, and mutual respect for #CAPHPACHDAY 2021. So the #CAPHPACHDAY motto is befitting because ‘When it comes to police and citizen harassment, National CAPHPACHDAY says “Put A Cap On It.” #PUTACAPONIT
