Innocent man harassed and profiled by CPD.
Organized by: Curtis Camp
I AM TRYING TO RAISE FUNDS FOR MY DEFENSE, because i was profiled and arrested by CPD for driveing the car where as my girlfriend and her friend were intoxicated and i was simply trying to get them home safe. I realize my license was not valied at the time but the reason why CPD pulled me over was because they said i had a faulty brake tail light was faulty that was there proable cause, when there was nothing wrong with my girlfriend car. 2010 ACURA TRUCK that was insured and registered to her mother and her address is located in HIGHLAND PARK, a western upper middle class suburb. I was followed for over a mile by CPD before i was pulled over on the South Side of Chicago. On 79th STONEY ISLAND And they had ran her license plate and saw that i was a AFRICAN AMERICAN MALE driveing. And i have evidence from a reliable mechanic from JIFFY LUBE stateing clearly the faulty tail light was fixed and in good working condition on May 5th 2016 and i was pulled over on JULY 15TH 2016 not even 2 months after the light was fixed. I have a PUBLIC DEFENDER and he is not representing me to the best of his ablity and under my 6Th AMENDMENT I DESERVE PROPER DEFENSE and i do not have the funds to hire a attorney. The Judical system says i can face up to 1-3 years in prison because of my backround. I have not been in the system for over 10 plus years and have turned my life around to be a productive member of society. I realize have not in the past been a model citizen. But i have paid my debt to society to my non violent crimes. I have a full time job i attend church at UNITED BAPTIST CHURCH ON THE REGULAR BASIS. I am drug free for over 12 years. I am just asking for help for my defense, cause i stand to lose everything i have worked so hard to regain. My own apartment job and most important my relationship with my kids 3. Two twin girls Sada and Sierra that are 11 years old, and my teen age son Cortez who will be 16 next year and is an A student and a Sophmore in high school and have work very very hard to be a good parent to my kids in my absense in the past because of my prior incarsaration. Which is the most important reason i am asking for help, because of the promise of being in there lives without going back to jail. My wife and I are divirced after 15 years because of my incarsaration i have lost the love of my life but I do not want to lose the bond i have built with my children. I go to work everday still while i am on house arrest and and able to attend church on sunday. I made the wrong choice getting behind the wheel that night but as i said i have been drug and alcohol free for over 12 years and was the only one sober in the car that night. I not only saved the lives of my girlfriend and her friend but the lives of others if she would have drove that night. I also saved my life so my kids wouldnt grow up without a dad, as in my promise to always be there for them and I have tried with all my heart and soul to keeo my promise. I am asking pleeding and praying for any help financially. If you have ever made mistakes in your life and have turned your life around for the better, by your hard work and your faith in GOD you can understand that as much as you try, the judical system never ever wipes your slate clean and always brings up your past no matter how many years in the past it has been the judical system never lets you for get it. Im asking from the bottom of my heart for your blessing and prayers, no matter what the outcome is to please keep my children family and me in your prayers. I THANK YOU IN ADVANCE IN TAKEING THE TIME TO READ MY CRY OUT FOR ASSISTANCE. SINCERELY MR. CURTIS CAMP.
