Lawrence Hamm, chairman of POP, said the main reason for the march and demonstration was to bring attention to the issue of police brutality and to support a petition by the American Civil Liberties Union seeking a federal investigation of the Newark Police Department. The ACLU petition, filed in September, claims the police department routinely violates residents’ civil rights through excessive force and false arrests.
