Pro Bono Representation for Maryland & DC BLM Protesters

Law Office of James E. Farmer, LLC

Global protests against the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Department officers continue. Although the four officers involved have been charged, the situation and its surrounding discussions are not over. The Black Lives Matter movement has broadened to include an anti-police brutality movement as well.

In the last few days, more and more peaceful protesters, bystanders, and news reporters have shared their stories and video footage of them being abused by police officers. More than 10,000 protesters have been arrested so far, and the vast majority complain of being arrested despite protesting peacefully and complying with the law. Ironically, the nationwide police reactions to the anti-police brutality protests have only further encouraged the protesters and escalated the exact issue they are protesting.

Peaceful protesters across the country have been arrested and charged with:

  • Unlawful assembly
  • Disorderly conduct
  • Refusing to comply
  • Pedestrian in roadway
  • Curfew violation
  • And more

There are also many emerging stories of protesters being held for 48 hours or more without ever being told why they had been arrested in the first place and never being charged with a crime. This policing strategy is a violation of habeas corpus, the foundational legal concept that prohibits the police from detaining someone for an unreasonable amount of time without charging them for a crime.
