STOP the ARRESTS and Drop ALL Charges Against BLM #Tally19 Protesters
HELP: the ARRESTS in Florida’s Capital City CONTINUE! The #Tally14 is NOW the #Tally19
On Saturday, September 5th, 2020 FIVE different law enforcment agencies, including the Tallahassee Police Department and Leon County Sheriff's Office orchestrated a militarized attack on peaceful Black Lives Matter protesters protesting the grand jury decision to NOT indict police officers involved in the murder of TonyMcDade, Mychael Johnson and Wilburn Woodard who were gunned down by Tallahassee police in March and May of this year. After pulling a black woman organizer from her car, 300 police attacked around 75-100 protesters arresting 14 on the spot THEN on Wednesday, September 9th the Tallahassee Police Department and the Leon County Sheriff's Department began executing arrests on more protesters (some of who only had misdemeanor charges against them). THIS IS UNPRECEDENTED in Tallahassee and sets a dangerous precedent for the state of Florida and the country. On Thursday, September 10th two more people were arrested bringing the total to 18 and we have knowledge of one more warrant right now which brings the total to 19 people targeted by police.
