One of the culprits behind the violence on the streets of Phoenix, Arizona, on October 9, was arrested fleeing the scene of the crime. Now liberals are totally flipping out that the city won’t let him out on bail to riot some more. They’re afraid it will send a chilling message to others not to riot.
Arrested for the third time
Americans are being conditioned by the liberal network media to see everything in Black and White. It has reached the point where Black and White Americans look at exactly the same set of circumstances and see two dramatically different scenes. The incarceration of Lee Percy Christian the third is a prime example. When Percy was arrested for the third time, but not released as expected, liberals came unglued.
Percy’s parent’s flew to Phoenix, Arizona, from their home in Ohio, just to tell the public how great a guy their son is. He’s so great that he keeps getting arrested for being smack in the middle of violent riots. They joined several George Soros funded action groups in front of City Hall on Wednesday demanding the release of their son, jailed without bond after rioting repeatedly. As Percy’s father, Pastor Lee Christian Jr. declared, “don’t tell me to sing a song about America the Beautiful when America is not beautiful for me. Don’t tell me to sing a song about how this land is our land, when you won’t let me have a part of the land.”
Conservatives are on the side of the police and standing up to pat them on the back for enforcing law and order by locking Percy Christian III away from the public for their safety after they arrested him yet again, as they’re supposed to. The progressive agenda hasn’t been very effective in Phoenix because the police won’t simply stand back and let them riot they way they do in liberal cities. Wealth sharing socialists in the Black community wonder how they’re supposed to get a pair of Jordans if they can’t go on a good old fashioned looting spree.
Drop the charges
Antifa may not be “organized” but BLM is. Black Lives Matter Phoenix Metro teamed up with Poder in Action and Mass Liberation AZ to demand that Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel simply drop the charges Percy Christian was arrested on or at the very least, “make him eligible for bail.” To heavily conditioned progressives, “Percy’s story is nothing less than political persecution. He sits in jail for exercising his First Amendment right.” Jamaar Williams of BLM Metro Phoenix is mistaken. He sits in jail for “criminal activity” during the riot on October 3, specifically, “rioting, unlawful assembly, blocking a public road, and hindering the arrest of another protester.” During the course of the evening, “The actions of the demonstrators caused officers to divert traffic in downtown Phoenix for several hours,” Sergeant Mercedes Fortune relates.
The police had good reasons to arrest him in October because Christian “recklessly used force to hinder the apprehension of an individual who was being arrested.” Not only that, “there was probable cause to arrest him from criminal activity from the August 9th demonstration.” For that peaceful protest, he’s “facing a felony charge of rioting.” that’s on top of “felony charges of aggravated assault and resisting arrest on July 18.” Liberals insist he be allowed back out on the streets so he can riot some more.
Christian isn’t being singled out for persecution and held in jail after he was arrested simply because of his beliefs, as Jennifer Liewer with the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office explained. “If someone is charged with a felony while on release for another felony charge, they are not entitled to bond without hearing, and the decision to offer bail is up to the court.” The judge said no way, Percy can rot in jail until his trial.
