Support Scottie Tripn (US Veteran Beaten by LAPD) 

On 1/6/21 US Veteran, and musician, Scottie came to the Downtown LA area to help keep innocent people safe during a violent Trump protest. He was arrested after defending himself from a Trump supporter who maced him for protecting innocent people. He was jumped by Trump supporters and then beaten with batons by LAPD. He was released later that day.

This is the most recent of Scottie’s many honorable acts of security at many different protests, counter protests and community events throughout LA. The community considers Scottie a true patriot as he served in the army, came home and has been putting himself on the front lines of the fight against injustice in LA ever since the murder of George Floyd. He always puts himself in harms way to protect others. He is a kind man who leads by example,  commands respect and is the epitome of a true black king.

My name is Dot, I am the founder of Hydrate LA. I personally met Scottie at a Black and Brown Unity protest in LA last summer as he walked up to me and offered to help my charity pass out free water to the protesters. Since then he has been our eyes and ears to the streets and guides us on ways we can help the community. I am humbled, inspired and grateful to have the opportunity to have him as an leader and confidant in the fight for justice. 

He has incurred legal and medical costs. He needs our help. I cannot imagine the PTSD, mental and physical pain Scottie suffers from for his continuous fearless acts of service to protect our community. I asked him if I could make this page to show how much we appreciate and support him. I also want to give him the recognition he deserves and a platform for his voice to be heard. Anything helps. All funds are for him. He has full access to this account. Thank you for your support!
