Malcolm Ferguson

Date of Incident: 
Wednesday, March 1, 2000

Soundview, Bronx: Malcolm Ferguson, a 23-year-old Black man, was unarmed when he was killed at point-blank range by undercover police officer Louis Rivera. Only 5 days before his death, Malcolm was arrested for protesting the acquittal of the four cops who murdered Amadou Diallo. A grand jury has never been convened in this case and no officers were ever charged. In 2007 a civil court jury determined that Rivera was “100 percent responsible” for Ferguson’s death and awarded his mother Juanita Young more than $10 million. However, the Bronx district attorney appealed the verdict and refused to reopen the criminal case against this cop. Juanita continues to demand justice for Malcolm and others who have lost their lives to police violence.

Police have continued to repeatedly threaten, abuse and falsely arrest Juanita Young and her family in attempt to silence them.
