Update: Videos of Protester Tased and Arrested at Sam Dubose March in Cincinnati

 Arrests in Cincinnati OH

As previously reported several people, including but not necessarily limited to Talis Gage, Benjamin Virnston, Jordan Freshour and Daniel Joseph, were arrested last night during a march in protest of the murder of Sam Dubose and other instances of Police brutality in Cincinnati. In addition, one protester who was arrested was tased prior to being arrested. Currently, I don’t know the identity of that individual or if he was one of the four arrestees previously mentioned.

Arrests in Cincinnati OhioSince the first post about the arrests, they have been bailed out by Micah David Naziri and are no longer being held. Several videos have also been posted of the arrests, which have been included below. The video at the top was recorded by Ademo and Brian Sumner, who were in attendance for the launch of the Mobile Accountability for Cops (MAC) Tour.

It’s not exactly clear from the videos what the rationalization for the tasing that can be seen on those videos was. It’s been said that it was a response to flipping off the cop, but all you can really see is that cop singling him out, chasing him briefly, and then using the taser on him. What is pretty clear in the video is that the person being assaulted with the taser is not at any point representing any sort of threat to the officer who is attacking him.

We’ll add more updates as information becomes available…

Breaking: Call Flood for Peaceful Protesters Arrested in Cincinnati

Call Flood in Cincinnati OhioDetails are a little light right now, but apparently as many as six people have just been arrested in Cincinnati, OH after an incident in which a police officer illegally used a taser on a protester who flipped him off during a #BlackLivesMatter/Sam Dubose protest. Among those arrested were  Jordan Freshour, Benjamin Virnston, and Talis Gage Cop Blockers from Ohio. I’ve been told that there were at least three other also arrested, but I don’t currently have names of anyone else. Micah David Naziri, another Cop Blocker who is also involved with Counter Current News, also stated that the police were following him and trying to coerce him into turning over footage of the incidents and arrests that he had recorded. Included below is a video from Chris Harrison, who was also present and witnessed the taser incident.

The Number to call is: (513) 946-6100 ext. 3
