On Thursday, November 10th at 10am, Attorney Aaron O’Neal will talk to the press about the Uhuru Movement’s plans for local and federal legal action against the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) for a pattern of deputy deadly shootings and unlawful pursuit of black teenagers.
“The PCSO uses lies and misinformation in an attempt to justify these murders and vilify the African community of South Pinellas County,” charges O’Neal. The Uhuru Movement’s attorney will reveal extensive evidence previously covered up by the PCSO, showing discriminatory use of excessive and deadly force as well as routine practices that violate black residents’ 4th Amendment rights.
At the press conference, O’Neal will be joined by Omali Yeshitela, Chairman of the African People’s Socialist Party, and Kunde Mwamvita, mother of 16-year-old Dominique Battle, who along with her two best friends was drowned by the PCSO on March 31, 2016.
