We stand with the people and with #JusticeforCoreyj#Repost from @mrchrisclassic using @RepostRegramApp - #justiceforcoreyJ i did NOT know that the officer Gaduto is pressing assault charges against the 12 year old. Which is a felony.
I could not be silent about that.
He doesnt deserve a felony.
The officer was not in danger.
The cobb county police CAN drop the charges. The Cumberland Mall CAN ask them to drop the charges as well.
According to Corey he was NOT selling CDs on THIS particular instance.
I still have the stance of accepting responsibility and accountability for how we raise our young creative entrepreneurs and independent artists and the means in which they promote themselves, BUT OVERWHELMINGLY MORE IMPORTANT is making it evidently clear that the history of automatic criminalization of Black men and women of EVERY age has to stop. Especially children.
