Media Statement: Freedom First International Pushing Louisiana AG for charges in Alton Sterling’s shooting

(Picture above is from a Past Event)

For Immediate Release: Statement on the Department of Justice refusal federal charges in Alton Sterling’s shooting

In the case of Alton Sterling our hearts go out to the family:

We are now at a time when we can’t depend on the US Government more specifically the Department of Justice-In communities around the country. To an unaware public  “Killer Cops” in many of these cases stay on the streets without prosecution. The people are not being served, period. The Jeff Sessions Department of Justice message is as long as you wear a badge “you are above the law”

In Baton Rouge people are shouting  “no justice, no peace,” We must continue to ignite and set off, an international dialog-Our goal is to remove any blockage standing in resistance to the prosecution of those who are responsible for Sterling’s death. “The whole thing is not just about Alton … it’s about justice in all of our community nationally and internally.” I call it final justice because we the people are tired now. After Tamir Rice, after John Crawford, after Eric Garner, we are tired now, and the only alternative must be for change.

So we stand with Sandra Sterling and the Sterling Family because final justice means the killings of young black men and women has to end.” No more!

The police officers involved in the shooting were Howie Lake II and Blane Salamoni. Lake had three years of law enforcement experience which included a previous shooting of an African American male. He was subsequently placed on a department-mandated leave; Salamoni had four years of experience. Salamoni and Lake had both been previously investigated and cleared by their department for allegedly having used excessive force. On world human rights day December 10, 2016 (video below)-Freedom First International stood with the family of Alton Sterling and said, we will not stop until justice is met. “Alton We love you and we will stand for Justice.”

So we now ask the Attorney General Of Louisiana Jeff Landry to pursue civil rights violations and appropriate charges on the officers who murdered Alton Sterling. Nothing else will suffice.

Jedidiah Brown, Sheena James and the Leadership of Freedom Fighters unfortunate incident.

 

11391266_995337397173027_5247468632435086671_n

On Yesterday, we will directly address concerns of Jedidiah Brown on a Facebook “Live” feed with Sheena M. James and the leadership of their group including Lamon Reccord. Unfortunately, the group reacted in a manner that was not only slanderous but can be considered highly illegal. The team decided to read and air out public information that contained private and personal data (some of it flawed) that included Bishop Gregg L.Greer and family members. The statement that was made via live was to “Crush the head.”  Crush the head we would take the statement as a serious expression of an intention to inflict bodily harm or incitement of others to commit harm. 

Multiple statements have been collected by (Bishop Greer, family, and executive team) now this collection of personal threats on Bishop Greer’s life and the lives of family members calling for those associated to commit acts that are intended to harm. The report that was conducted is being examined as to “see” where Mr.Brown and Miss James did acquire such information-it is believed that a member of their group provided the information.

The incident last night proves that this group will go through any means to pursue their objective which on the outside has become in resemblance to “ganglike” activity. This group has consistently shown that it will use threats, slander, intimidation, and even potentially hurting others. 

Use of the internet to threaten “the person of another” constitutes a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 875 ( interstate communication of threat to injure) If it is communicated interstate, federal jurisdiction is created.

To constitute “a communication containing a threat” under Section 875(c), a communication must be such that a reasonable person (1) would take the statement as a serious expression of an intention to inflict bodily harm (the mens rea), and (2) would perceive such expression as being communicated to effect some change or achieve some goal through intimidation (the actus reus). A message is a “threat” if a reasonable recipient would tend to believe that the originator of the message was serious about his words and intended to effect the violence or other harm forewarned, regardless of the speaker’s actual motive for issuing the communication. 

Any person who willfully threatens to commit a crime which will result in death or great bodily injury to another person with the specific intent that the statement made verbally in writing or by means of an electronic communication device is to be taken as a threat even if there is no intent of actually carrying it out which on its face and under the circumstances in which it is made is so unequivocal unconditional immediate and specific as to convey to the person threatened a gravity of purpose and an immediate prospect of execution of the threat and thereby causes that person reasonably to be in sustained fear for his or her own safety or for his or her immediate family’s safety.

It is not necessary for the victim to actually be placed in fear of imminent serious bodily injury or for the accused to have the capability or the intention to actually carry out the threat. The offense is completed if the accused, by his threat, sought as a desired reaction, to place a person in fear of imminent serious bodily injury.

His charismatic personality will always be remembered. 

 

Rest-in-peace

 

While we won’t give attention to the current US President Donald Trump and his allegations of insensitivity to the commitment of this young man. We will say that our community is well aware of issues the surround those who continually act outside of our interest.

Freedom First International Media Statement to advocacy, media, community. RE: Semaj Crosby

11391266_995337397173027_5247468632435086671_n

 

Today,  we have entered into a new stage of our Advocacy with the fight “Justice for Baby Semaj Crosby.” The Semaj Crosby Coalition for Justice (on facebook) has now been formed-soon, we expect to began having actions and public education events on the ground.

The message from the concerned Family of baby Semaj:

For the Crosby’s- It is physically and emotionally draining to be called upon to prove that systems exist-that are working against us. For many, family, advocacy, and community- just struggling to keep this child’s name clear as we fight for “justice” is a task within it’s self. So we now say enough is enough. Now we must ask everyone to break clear of  innuendo as we want Justice and to move forward as much as any “grieving” family can who losses a loved one. 

Freedom First International has laid out the following bullet points:

  1. The Father of Semaj Crosby is fighting for Justice for his daughter! James Crosby now has support of family, and community who also want to see justice to move on with their lives. 
  2. No one should be speaking officially for the family except those authorized by the family-in an effort to stay clear of confusion with a very complex and very difficult situation.  
  3. Many People in the community who want to help can do so by simply supporting by joining groups who are progressive. 
  4. God Mother (Parents) is not an authorized representative of the Crosby Family or Estate of Semaj Crosby. We would ask out of respect for Baby Semaj Crosby-that no Media, Social Justice Organizations, and Community members give a forum to God Mother or any unauthorized representative of the Estate of Semaj Crosby. (This request is also being made for obvious legal reasons)

Can anyone fully explain why they would think that they are at an unfair disadvantage when in reality it’s not about them-the public must know the truth. Imagine watching a countess flurry of homemade “You Tude” video’s where a young seemingly “misguided” woman with an “alleged” but rather dubious and checkered history-claims to be representing the family, and also the Estate of Semaj Crosby. Many in the community believe-This verbal contest has constructed for “personal gain.” Unfortunately, We are forced day by day to engage with the idea that there are none (but you) actually advocating for Semaj-when the truth is the family loved this baby in “life” that love continues in the “afterlife.” The community has been truly mislead and some are now smearing the family. If that were not enough- it is also widely believed that this person has compromised much of the investigation of the death of Baby Semaj-a fact which local authorities fully agree.

It is incredibly painful to have to advocate for this child and address those who wish to continue on a downward path of confusion. None of the Confusion is needed or warranted.

Going forward our Prayer is that in the short turn Semaj Crosby will have her “Justice.” We hope that the light and love that she gave will help brighten dark paths for other children and those who are in need. This must and will be legacy of Semaj Crosby!

Best, Regards-Caring Community, Family and Advocacy for Semaj Crosby!
