Add comment on:Police Profiling & Military Spying: Why I Am Suing the Olympia Police Department (OPD)
Strife Support Committee
In 2010, I was framed for assault on an officer at a protest in solidarity with Oscar Grant and other victims of police violence. The circumstances of the protest we're highly suspicious and I soon learned through public records that the police received a tip from a man working for the Fort Lewis military base. The repression of this protest against police brutality came after a criminal intelligence analyst named John Towery who was working for the US military was proven to have infiltrated our anti-war movement from 2007-2009. As a result, a series of court cases have been filed against the police and the US military for false arrest and imprisonment, harassment and curtailment of our civil rights. My trial starts on March 11th against OPD, and the trial of the military spy begins in June of this year.
