Russell Simmons Speaks On Diallo Case


Simmons had this to say

about the verdict in the Diallo case. ``I am horrified by the

outcome of the Diallo case. This verdict stands as another reason

for the community to stand together for change. ``The Hip-Hop

community moves as an army that has the power to elect government

that puts the people first vs. the officially sanctioned and promoted

police state mentality of Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. ``This verdict

will continue to motivate me to be part of the aggressive effort

that galvanizes our youth to register, vote and make changes in

the current system.'
