Stand With Adrin Court Date
November 14, 2017 @ 12:00 am
We will again come together to show Adrin he has the community behind him.
Too many young black people are chewed up and spit out by the justice system, and we need to show Kingston Police that we stand with Adrin, and demand that his charges are dropped.
On July 20th 24 year old Adrin Broadhead was walking home from work when police stopped him to question where he was going, and where he had been. They asked him what was in his hand, and he was holding a beer.
3 – 4 cop cars arrived and because he had no identification on him, the officers kept asking him to repeat his name.
A cop came up behind him and tried to put his hands behind his back – before he knew it he was face down on the ground.
While on the ground – curled up in a fetal position, he was pepper sprayed and tased by officers of the Kingston Police Department.
He is bruised, scratched and swollen.
His charges were: Littering, Open Container and Resisting Arrest.
