Interfaith Rally to Stop Legal Lynching in Seattle – Black Man Found Guilty of Escaping Lynch Mob! –

Thursday, November 13, 2014
Seattle Municipal Court (600 5th Ave, Seattle, WA 98104)

Longtime Seattle anti-racist activist, Matt E (aka MC Bypolar The Toxic Cherub) goes in for his sentencing hearing at 9am at Seattle Municipal Court on 5th and James, downtown Seattle on Thursday November 13th. The sentencing is for guilty verdicts he has from escaping a lynch mob over a year ago. Three others have also been arrested and charged with Contempt of Court for their vocal support of Matt E during the racist, unfair trial. This whole thing is a blatantly clear example of white supremacy, as the state (police & the courts) have worked in collaboration with a racist vigilante mob in an attempt to destroy the life of yet another Black person.
