COYOTE Comments: Freaking sad as hell that this woman died because the cops were doing a prostitution raid:

The Facebook Shares: The NYPD has murdered one of our community members. On Sunday, a 38 year old woman died after a raid on her workplace in Queens the previous evening. If these massage parlor raids continue more workers will die, be incarcerated, deported. Stop criminalizing sex work. Stop criminalizing working people. Stop targeting parlors. Shame on the NYPD! Your raids are killing women! Your raids are destroying families, criminalizing survivors, deporting hard working people and terrorizing our communities! Get out of parlors and stay out! How can these massage parlor raids be justified when women are dying?! Meet at the 109th Precinct at NOON for speak out and moment of rage. Allies, accomplices, friends, family all welcome.  December 17th is International Day to End Violence Against Sex Workers, join us to demand an end to police terror.  ***We will have scarves on hand if you need to protect your identity, send us a message before the event.***

The Queens North Vice Enforcement Division—which investigates human trafficking, prostitution and internet crimes against children—conducted an operation on 40th Road around 7:30 p.m.

As they attempted to gain access to a third-floor apartment, officers outside the building witnessed a 38-year-old woman, whose name has not been released, fall from a window and land on the sidewalk, causing severe trauma to her head and body.

EMS workers rushed the woman to Booth Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead the following day.

The investigation is ongoing.
