Dorthy Holmes speaks about the loss she struggles to deal with following the murder of her child by a Chicago cop and the
cover up that has followed due to the policy of Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, and the States Attorney, Anita Alverez, of supporting the Police Code of Silence.

Attorney Alverez lost her bid to be reelected in the March 2016 primary because of her record of covering up police crimes against Blacks and Hispanics which gained notoriety following the murder of Laquan McDonald and the forced release of the police video of the shooting.

Alverez may also be involved in the on going conspiracy to obstruct justice connected to Police Commander Jon Burge, torture and the former Mayor, who was States Attorney prior to becoming the second Daley to rule in Chicago.

Dorothy Holmes, mother of Ronald “Ronnieman” Johnson, a victim of police murder in October 2014. In the past year, Dorothy Holmes has been singled out by the racist media for her militant speeches demanding justice for her son.
