Rev. Pinkney Arrested AGAIN, supporters: Lynn Stewart, Voice Of Detroit, EXPOSED,

What's really happening to the people of Benton Harbor:
The thrust [of the Berrien county courthouse] is to physically remove and destroy families through the use
of the criminal justice system. Every person they can put in jail; every person whose voting rights they can
revoke with a felony conviction; every person they can cause to lose their job by putting them on probation;
every person they can cause to lose the ability to pay for basic necessities through imposing ruinous court
costs and probation is all part of the process. In the 1960s, it was called Negro removal. In Bosnia, it was
called ethnic cleansing. It could be called genocide, the removal of the minority population for the purpose
of redevelopment of the land. That’s what’s happening in Benton Harbor and the foremost leader
of the resistance is Rev. Edward Pinkney. --Civil rights attorney, Hugh "Buck" Davis

Dear Rev/Brother Ed Pinkney & Family. Let not your heart be troubled my Brother. Because Mother Pinkney has moved on to a better and peaceful place, and I feel that your lost is my lost also...due to the fact we are family spiritually. I do hope that I can make it to Chicago to be with you, but just in case that I can't make it you are in my prayers, and from my Heart Love you Brother. Sign WilliamX
