Michael Brewster is back in court on Wednesday and his family is asking for our support.

On February 9th, Michael wasn't feeling quite himself. He wasn't posing a danger to anyone but he may have needed some assistance. His mom and sister-in-law, flagged the police over to ask them to call an ambulance for Michael because they thought he needed to go to the hospital.

Instead of helping Michael, they brutalized him. They punched him, struck him with their baton, several officers were on top of him despite saying multiple times that he coudn't breathe. A sherriff even kicked him in the ribs after throwing him into the jail cell. Michael was lucky to have survived this attack. It may have been worse if his mother, Trina Peters and his family didn't prevent further brutalization.

In their normal corrupt fashion, the police are charging Michael with 3 felony counts of assualt and threat of assault.

The preliminary trial starts Wednesday morning. Please come if you can! We'll be handing out heart-shaped pins to show our solidarity for Michael.

♥ Love & Justice for Michael Brewster ♥
