JR Valrey and co-defendant in court
JR Valrey and a co-defendant appeared in court Monday to fight bogus charges in relation to the January Rebellions sparked by the murder of Oscar Grant.
JR Valrey and a co-defendant appeared in court Monday to fight bogus charges in relation to the January Rebellions sparked by the murder of Oscar Grant. In attendance were a number of national figures from the struggle against police and prisons, including Fred Hampton Jr. of the Prisoners of Conscience Committee (POCC), as well as M-1 and Umi of dead prez/RBG. Cynthia McKinney had previously expressed her support.
JR's case is put off until the end of October. As proof that this system values corporate investment over the law it claims to uphold, his co-defendant will be able to plead to reduced charges and have other charges dropped if he pays restitution for damages.
