Pasadena BLM activist Jasmine Richards was sentenced Tuesday, June 7, for allegedly trying to stop police from an unlawful arrest of a young woman.
The founder of Black Lives Matter Pasadena chapter, Jasmine Richards, 28, was convicted about a week ago of what California officials refer to as a felony lynching, which simply means “taking by means of a riot of another person from the lawful custody of a peace officer.”
Activist Richards was arrested in August 2015 for trying to prevent police officers from unlawfully arresting a black woman, who was accused of not paying for her meal at a restaurant in Pasadena, California.
Richards was charged with delaying and obstructing officers, inciting riot and felony lynching.
Although Richards is not the only protester in U.S. history charged with lynching, she is however the first African-American woman, who has been charged with this offence. She was sentenced to 90 days in jail, after which she will be on probation for 36 months.
Attempts to arrest active members of the BLM and other human rights groups are becoming more and more common in U.S. Black activists are videotaped and traced by the undercover cops so that they can find reasons to silent them or send them to jail for as long as possible as they did with black Ferguson activist, Josh Williams. This is a part of government partisan war against black communities, that’s why we shouldn’t give up our activity if we do not want let them win.
