Maricopa County Branch Responds to the Ahmaud Arbery Shooting

The Maricopa County Branch of the NAACP sends our prayers and condolences to the family of Ahmaud Arbery. The Maricopa County Branch-NAACP, “The Branch,” joins with the national NAACP President, Derrick Johnson and Georgia State NAACP President , James Wadell, in the call for justice in the Ahmaud Arbery case .

It is a travesty that it took (seventy-four) 74 days before suspects were apprehended and detained when the murder of Mr. Arbery had been previously video tapped. This is yet another grim illustration that much is still left to be done to ensure justice is served for all. It is our prayer that judicial equity will prevail in this great country called America.

It is imperative that the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, and the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia conduct a fair and impartial assessment of the facts in an effort to determine if this was indeed another unfortunate premeditated hate crime.

“The Branch” will continue to advocate on behalf of any and all efforts to seek justice for a fair and unbiased trail.

Karen Hardin, Branch President

Maricopa County Branch Response to Phoenix Police Excessive Force Incident

The NAACP Maricopa County Branch commends the transparency of the Phoenix Police Department and supports the plans for an immediate investigation by the Professional Standards Bureau of a recent incident of misconduct. This incident as depicted in a video of June 11, 2019 shared by the Phoenix Police Department, appears to involve excessive force by Police Officers. The video shows that guns were drawn on a man and women while two small children were present as a follow-up to an investigation of a shop lifting occurrence . The NAACP Maricopa County Branch recommends continued transparency and monitoring of this incident which appears to be an egregious case of excessive force.
