Isaac Wright is an honorably retired Army special operations veteran of six years who began shooting photography to cope with mental illness, specifically PTSD and depression. His work involves capturing the world from never before seen perspectives. On December 17
th, 2020 Isaac was arrested unarmed at gunpoint outside flagstaff Arizona on nationwide warrant all for the alleged crimes of entering areas in Cincinnati unlawfully and taking pictures. Using a picture of Isaac holding a handgun while in the service and with his military training police perpetuated a narrative that Isaac was a PTSD ridden threat to society and arrested him with 15 officers and an attack helicopter. Isaac has no criminal record and served honorably in the Army. He was the incarcerated without bond for two months in Arizona awaiting extradition to Cincinnati. Using his seized footage, the lead detective on his case sought to get him charged anywhere possible including Kentucky, Louisiana and Ohio. He was charged with three counts of F2 Burglary (one step below murder, an F1) all for the alleged crime of trespassing to take photos in Cincinnati, OH. The lead detective and prosecution stated on the record in court that "Nothing was stolen and nobody was hurt."
When he was finally taken back to Ohio, he posted bond and then an emergency hearing was called, raising his bond to $400,000 before he could be released. After two months of fighting bond was finally lowered and Isaac was released. Isaac is still fighting the egregious wrongful imprisonment and over-charging by the Cincinnati Police Department and the case is an ongoing battle. Police also seized his new phone and car only a week after he was released when he was traveling back from Louisiana on the Ohio Court's orders. His case is now reaching national news as he seeks justice. With mounting legal fees and court costs he needs your help. https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2021/04/19/photographer-and-veteran-isaac-wright-arrested-again-kentucky/7288482002/
