Since demonstrations began against the police murder of Keith Lamont Scott, police in Charlotte have been mass arresting protesters & legal observers, using chemical weapons, and violating their most basic rights.
Jamil Gill (aka King Mills), who many around the country and the world know for his on the ground livestreams from the first nights of protest, has been a particular target of police repression ever since the protests began. He was arrested and issued an outrageous bond of $320,000, which the movement fought and reduced to a still obscene amount of $162,000.
He was bonded out early in the day on September 28, and subsequently REARRESTED by police as he ate lunch! This is a clear attempt to intimidate and harass Gill, and an attempt by the state to silence and have a chilling effect on the rest of the movement.
During demonstrations on September 21, police attacked the protests and killed 26 year old Black man Justin Carr. Continuing their targeting Black and Brown people and a total lack of transparency by the CMPD, they are falsely accusing Raquan Borum for Justin’s death.
The police have continued to violate arrestee’s legal rights by:
We need you to call and email the jail, Charlotte and state officials and demand that they stop violating arrestees’ rights!
Script for call or email –
My name is _______ and I am a resident of ________. Can I speak to ?
I am calling to demand that you stop the repression of demonstrators in Charlotte.
Hands off #CharlotteUprising! The whole world is watching, and we won’t stop until our demands are met and the people get justice!
