After a viral police beating incident was released in Kingsland, Georgia, the Georgia State Conference was alerted by Camden County NAACP President Timothy Besset. The Local Unit responded to the call of Jarrett Hobbs through his Attorneys Harry Daniels and Bakari Sellers. In demanding justice and accountability, the Attorneys and members of the NAACP demanded a thorough investigation and charges. Today, three Camden County Deputies were fired and arrested for their involvement in the incident.
Georgia NAACP President Gerald Griggs releases the following statement, "The video-recorded assault on #JarrettHobbs was more than appalling. As the President of the Georgia NAACP, we stand with him and his lawyers as well as the Camden County NAACP in demanding justice. Today’s arrests by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation are a critical first step. We at the Georgia NAACP will continue to support the events of the local unit through the criminal process."
