It appears those standing up for what they say is blatant racism in our justice system are getting what they want, sort of.
Minutes after a Harris County jury acquitted former HPD Officer, Andrew Blomberg, for beating a black teenager, Chad Holley, outrage led to a planned protest by community activists.
Protesters sat outside the courthouse Thursday, demanding to either speak to District Attorney Pat Lykos or get arrested.
Neither happened until Friday.
Lykos met with activist Quanell X and several local ministers. Whatever happened in there didn’t satisfy protesters who weren’t included.
One protester could be heard saying, “Okay, go ahead and get your police. Come and arrest us. We not leaving ’cause the minister didn’t call this meeting, we did.”
Protesters blocked the door to Lykos’ office, demanding another meeting. All they got was a statement.
Lykos said, “If people here truly want to have a meeting, then go over there to the window and schedule it. I will not meet with anyone who occupies our lobby, who impedes the administration of justice, who uses profane language with our employees, so therefore I’m asking you to leave now.”
Protesters didn’t hear the warning. Instead, one said “tell Pat Lykos she can take this statement right here and shove it up her racist tail.”
Their next move was to lie on the floor and block the doorway. The cops’ next move was to arrest them on criminal trespassing charges.
Protesters James Ridley and Samantha Williams pray.
Standing up for what you believe in is noble and all, but sitting behind bars solves nothing.
To some, our justice system may have failed once, but the fight’s not over. The case is going federal. Let’s let them handle it.
