A disappointed and sobering Mrs. Blakely, as she sat alongside Dominique Alexander- President of Next Generation Action Network, Attorney Kim Cole and her family members.
Quincy Blakely was stopped by police for a license plate light malfunction March 4, 2015.
As the Dallas county deputy approached the car; camera rolling, the deputy seemed instantly agitated.
Upon advising Mr. Blakely the reason he was being pulled over, Mr. Blakely disclosed to the officer that he had a Concealed Handgun License(CHL) and was currently armed. The deputy then asked Mr. Blakely to step out of the vehicle. Mr. Blakely refused, stating he had the right to stay in the car and hadn’t been charged with any crimes. The Dallas deputy stated in the Video, “license plate light out is a crime”. Once the backup officers arrived on the scene Blakely and His wife were violently removed from the vehicle.
The result of this traffic stop:
- Pulled over for an alleged license plate light being out (no citation issued)
- Unlawful possession of a firearm by a license holder “while intoxicated” (cased dropped)
- Resisting arrest (case dropped).
- Charged with assault on a public servant (case pending)
- No Bond
According to NGAN in a press released statement, “Mr. Blakely was charged with resisting arrest/detention and assaulting an officer.”
It’s alleged the arresting deputy was scratched while grabbing and pulling Mr. Blakely out of the vehicle.
Dominique Alexander,” Mr. Blakely’s rights were violated and we want answers from the Dallas District Attorney’s Office and Judge about what’s going on with this situation.”
Mr. Blakely’s case is pending in criminal court.
Attorney Kim Cole, “Officer shot a child in the head with a rifle, was released on a $300,000 bond, however, an African American man was stopped for having a license plate light out and is sitting in jail with no bond. That’s a problem.”
For over two-years, the Blakely’s have been dealing with pending charges and on May 4th, 2017, Mr. Blakely was arrested again and is now sitting in the Dallas County Jail.
Mrs. Blakely, “He never been in jail before for a crime and Him being away for something He didn’t do, it’s hard.”
Next Generation Action Network plans to have direct action campaigns to prompt the Dallas District Attorneys and the Judge over the case to respond and drop all charges.
