Leftist group posts bond for alleged gang member who was with Adam Toledo the night he was shot

The night 13-year-old Adam Toledo was killed in a police shooting in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood he was running around, literally it seems, with 21-year-old Ruben Roman, an alleged member of the Latin Kings gang. Roman, who has a police record, is out on bail now. Who posted it? A left-wing group, the Chicago Community Bond Fund.

From CBS Chicago:

On Monday night, he was out on bond – at home on electronic monitoring.

"We often prioritize cases that are connected to social justice movements – especially the movement to end police violence," said Keisa Reynolds, who currently leads the Chicago Community Bond Fund. The bond fund pays bonds for those who can’t afford to pay on their own. 

They bonded Roman out of jail – putting up $40,000.

"We made the decision to post bond for Mr. Roman because we are aware that the city will continue to use him as a scapegoat for the killing of Adam Toledo, which was committed by the Chicago Police Department," Reynolds said.
Toledo is being charged with a probation violation, child endangermentm and reckless discharge in regards to his actions the night Toledo was killed.

In a recent Facebook post the Chicago Community Bond Fund had this to say, "CCBF stands with everyone resisting police violence and white supremacy."
