for Michigan Citizen Reporter Diane Bukowski’s Legal Appeal

Bring your kids and grand-kids!!

Refreshments, games, good talk

Diane Bukowski, a reporter for The Michigan Citizen newspaper for nearly 10 years, was framed up by Michigan State troopers and Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy when she photographed the aftermath of a fatal police chase last Election Day, Nov. 4. The chase, down East Davison, took the lives of Detroiters James Willingham, a father of 10, and Jeffery Frazier, who was beloved in his community.

Worthy first brought FIVE FELONY COUNTS of “assaulting, battering, wounding, resisting, obstructing or endangering” troopers at the scene. The charges were reduced to two counts at Bukowski’s preliminary exam. But on May 1 a jury composed mainly of suburbanites convicted her, despite having seen a Fox 2 News videotape that showed her innocence, depicting her arrest from beginning to end. She was sentenced to one-year probation and over $4000 in fines June 1. Her appeals attorneys are John Royal and Sharon McPhail.

Bukowski has covered cases of police brutality, including killings, rapes and frame-ups, for the last ten years, earning Worthy’s enmity because she also covered complaints by victims’ families when Worthy refused to criminally charge the perpetrators. Bukowski has broad support from journalists, public officials, union officers, community groups and people across Detroit, the state and the country.

All proceeds to the Committee to Defend Diane Bukowski & Freedom of the Press. Donations of food, games, etc. welcomed. Drop off $$$ donations if you can’t stay.
