Even though the Federal Courts in Kentucky, The State of Kentucky Courts are open for business. For all of those who thought these charges were fake or this is some game no these charges are very serious. On TalkBlackToMeRadio we’ve done a lot here to shed light on the GMJ situation and bring peace to a chaotic situation. We want to continue to shed light on this case to make sure the “justice system” is just and fair to grand master jay. This livestream is calling for the supporters of the movement that are able to, show up on Feb 26th and show grand master Jay we stand in solidarity with him and the legal system can’t treat him just any kind of way.
Here’s a link to the petition if you would like to support in that way as well.
Here’s an article from December.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — The leader of the “Not F***ing Around Coalition” (NFAC), a Black militia that demonstrated in Louisville during last summer’s social unrest, was arrested Thursday on a federal charge.
John Johnson, 57, commonly referred to as “Grandmaster Jay,” or GMJ, was charged with “assaulting, resisting or impeding certain officers or employees,” according to court documents.
Johnson is accused of pointing a ar at Louisville Metro Police officers, as well as federal officers, on Sept. 4, the night before the 2020 Kentucky Derby, according to a probable cause affidavit. The alleged incident took place just after 8:30 p.m. as officers were conducting surveillance over demonstrators at Jefferson Square in downtown Louisville.
At that time, an LMPD radio transmission went out notifying officers that a group of “six to eight heavily armed individuals” were parked on Armory Place, near a parking garage, according to court documents. Two federal officers and three LMPD officers then went to the top of the nearby Jefferson County Grand Jury Building to watch the group.
When they got there and leaned over the roof, three of them were blinded by a flashlight, the affidavit claims.
Investigators say that flashlight was on the end of a ar that Johnson was pointing at them. All of the officers identified the suspect as Grandmaster Jay, according to court documents.
“All officers advised they were concerned Johnson might intentionally, or even accidentally, discharge a round at them,” the probable cause affidavit states. “All officers recognized that the distance between themselves and Johnson was well within the effective range of the AR platform style ar.”
Two of the officers were wearing soft body armor, but were “aware that soft body armor would not stop a ar round,” the affidavit states.
Jessie Halladay, a spokeswoman for LMPD, met with Johnson and another member of the group about 30 seconds after the incident and later identified Johnson from surveillance video, according to the documents.
Johnson was booked into the Oldham County Detention Center just before 1 p.m. Thursday, officials said. If Johnson is convicted of his charges, he faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in federal prison, according to a news release from United States Attorney Russell Coleman’s office.
“Here in Kentucky we revere our First and Second Amendment freedoms, not foolishness which puts police and protesters at grave risk,” Coleman said in the news release.
Roughly 200 members of the NFAC were in Louisville on Derby Day during protests over the loss of Breonna Taylor, a Black woman who was shot and taken down by white police officers during a March 13 raid of her apartment.
