For 3rd week protests gather at the home of Baltimore City States Attorney.
For the 3rd week, protesters showed up at the home of Baltimore Cities States Attorney Gregg Bernstein to protest his actions or inactions. The community groups have been holding protest at the States Attorney's home since his decision not to prosecute the Baltimore City Police Officers involved in the death of a East Baltimore man named Anthony Anderson Sr.. Anderson's death has been ruled by the States Attorney to be justified and was within police policy, but the community and witnesses think different.
The groups have been protesting during the whole month of February, every Saturday. "This is our tribute to Black History Month. We'll be here every Saturday for the whole month in protest of our States Attorney who refuses to prosecute corruption and police brutality in Baltimore City.", said one protester known as the "toilet bomber". Shorty Duane Davis was wrongfully prosecuted after leaving protest art at a Towson Court House. The art work was a porcelain toilet which was thought to be a bomb.
"They took everything from me and after I beat them in Court they still crapped all over me. Now I'm taking them to the Justice Department cause Bernstein refuses to prosecute them for what they did to me, nor will he help me get back my property. I lost my catering business and all my equipment with it while they had me locked up without bail. That's how they do us in Baltimore City. They crap all over us. But I'm still out here with my toilets showing everybody how to beat them using there own system. I'm fighting them on there grounds, in Court." said Shorty. The group plans to hold there final protest next Saturday and ask the community to join them in the fight to help end police brutality and injustices in Baltimore City. BTW, the States Attorney did drive past the protesters as he was coming home and stopped to waive at them. He doesn't seem to be worried one bit. Bet his neighbors don't like it though.
