Free Justin Coffman (Pedro)

First, I would like to say thank you for clicking  on this and reading. Please share! 

Justin Coffman, (Pedro) is the purest soul I have ever met. He is incredibly smart, talented, goofy/funny, loving and loyal. He is very passionate. He has the biggest most selfless heart that i have ever seen in a man. 51909218_1602743555680346_r.jpeg

He has a spirit dedicated to speaking out against injustices towards BIOPOC /LGBTQ and many other wrong /unfair/sensitive issues that are happening in our  "free country ".  He has stood along side some of you in such matters and has even voiced them on his social media accounts. There is no grey area with him.  It's all black and white. What's  wrong is wrong and he is always willing to point out the truths while shining light on all the unlawful wrong doings of others.

Justin is also a very gifted and talented musician.  So talented, that he won the "Bassist of the Year" in 2018 at the Tennessee Music Awards. 51909218_1602743706277704_r.jpeg

He recently decided to start a PUNK music project called "THE GUNPOWDER PLOT", in hopes of highlighting the injustices that many Americans face, especially the ones involving the corporate elites.  ( kind of like Rage Against the Machine, The Dead Kennedys ect.) 

( He is also very crafty, he makes and sells " PUNK " Jackets , he collects patches and pins as well) 

In his pursuit of this new found Punk Band Project, he decided to get pictures done for the band, ( some album art). He wanted something to grab the attention of the viewers/listeners. He used many props in these pictures. One included a mock Molotov cocktail that was made with apple cider vinger and a cloth sticking out.  The picture was him with his back to the camera, pretending to light the prop behind his back. 

This is the prop/picture that started it all..

Someone that did not like him or agree with his "political " beliefs made several complaints to the Police station.  Justin and the police officer talked about said complaints and the officer said " just refrain, lay low, everyone is on high alert right now because of the stuff going on around the world." (Pertaining to George Floyd protests)
 
A few days later, around June 2nd, the FBI kicked in his door, broke a window and took him to jail.  (They caused severe damage to his roommates home. ) He was held a little less than 48 hours, they talked to him and let him go. They Did not charge him with anything nor say anything about a court date. They basically made it go away, told him that he had nothing to worry about. A week or so later he was able to pick up the things they took from the house.  (BTW this FBI raid got him kicked out of his home) 

Fast forward to yesterday, without warning they came to his place of employment saying that he had a warrant out for his arrest. They even sent cops/Marshall's out to his house searching for "more evidence".  

The very first time they raided the (roommates) house all they found was his patches ( designs that he sews on jackets) that they labeled "Anarchy Paraphernalia", a little bit of weed, and his gun.  Then, as you read in the news articles, they "connected" him to the protests. Protests that were against police violence. ( which were peaceful btw)

The news articles painted him out to be some unstable drug user that made a "fake bomb" and had guns in his home.  Then they mentioned him being at protests. It was almost like they were insinuating he is dangerous, like some sort of domestic terrorist or something. 

The only thing Justin used that "fake bomb" for was for pictures and a centerpiece, when he surprised me with a beautiful hand cooked meal. ❤

The "drugs" they mention was a little oz of weed. 

The gun was his and they took his roommates guns as well. 

If you haven't seen the news articles yet I implore you to read them and see how they are painting our sweet Justin.
They (media and government) love to use fear, they love to blow things out of proportion. They are already trying to get into peoples heads in order to sway the citizens (those who will be a part of a jury) if that comes to be.. I pray it doesn't. 

This GoFund Me is for legal representation.  

I'm also calling on people to be Character Witnesses, I am asking that you please tweet/tag these District Attorneys/judges/ TBI/ ATF/ and any other name/organization involved in these News Articles. Please alert them to the mistake they are making.  Please speak on behalf of Justin. Let our voices be heard against this heart breaking injustice.  He has no criminal record! He is a wholesome man.
( Oh,  and he doesn't do "drugs", he stopped smoking weed months ago) 

Justin's civil rights have been infringed upon! 

He right to bear arms.
1) He lived in a bad area of town, that gun was for his protection.  2) He never had it on his person.  He has every right to keep safe. 

His freedom of speech... 

He has a  right to peacefully protest...

He has freedom of self expression. His art. His lyrics/ pictures..ect. 

His freedom of beliefs/religion...


I have no idea what's going to happen, I don't understand why they went after him again.  He hasn't been doing anything that would make him a threat either. 

I just know that I need to help him get a damn good lawyer..


The media is portraying him as a monster. To those of us who know him, we know this to be untrue.

Please, I beg of you. Help me fight for his freedom. 51909218_1602743506549527_r.jpeg

Help me show the world the kind of man Justin really is.  Show them his heart. Show them that he is not a threat! 

This reminds me of all the musicians and artists that the fbi/ media attacked/harassed for being  "political".

Just to name a few...

-The Almanac Singers
- John Lennon
- Insane Clown Posse
-NWA (Ice Cube)
-Elvis
- Nine Inch Nails
- Duke Ellington 
-Phil Ochs
- The Monkees
-Rage Against the Machine
