"Hot Springs' 6" Skateboard Supporters Turn Up the Sustained Heat This Friday
Hot Springs AR— This week Friday September 21 (International Peace Day & Call To Action) and October 22 (National Anti-Police Brutality Day) I myself and several supporters will be protesting in mass in down town Hot Springs- location where Jarrod Graham, one of the Hot Springs 6, was allegedly choked on video camera and captured with photographs. I will also be symbolically riding a skateboard in the spot where the youths were involved with Officer Joey Williams. We as a large group will then walk to the Hot Springs Police Department to voice our concerns, petitions our grievances, and protest there as well.
We have announced these strategic actions and other actions as a long term peaceful campaign that will last at least till June 21st 2008- the one year anniversary of Go Skateboarding Day and the day the youths were involved in the incidence with Officer Joey Williams.
In addition, we the supporters are calling for the re-investigation of Officer Joey Williams and believe his treatment of the "Hot Springs 6" excessive, not to mention, that the investigative panel was indeed illegitimate, unjust, and a direct conflict of interest.
We have initiated this powerful sustained protest via the Internet and will continue to raise awareness to the events that took place June 21st 2007 between Officer Joey Williams and the Hot Springs youths.
We will NOT stop..
New Petition To Re-Investigate Officer Joey Williams:
