While driving to a show, we were followed, pulled over and approached by a Missouri State Trooper with his hand on his gun. We were racially profiled, and targeted by two white police officers. They pulled us all out of the car, searched us all and now have one of us in custody. The above amount is for support. The bail that was posted is THREE times the amount that they normally charge. Any amount that comes close but falls short will be used for attorney fees, be donated to others in need, or returned to donors. We haven’t gotten there yet right now we just want to get our friend out safely.
we are an all POC band and we have the right to travel across the country with out being targeted, and abused by local law enforcement.
