THE STORY:

WRONGFULLY ACCUSED YOUNG- BLACK & PROFILED IN ST LOUIS MO #FREE JORDAN JACKSONAKAJAYBIZ My son Jordan Jackson has been stopped and arrested 6-7 times by Florissant Police in St. Louis MO within a 2 yr period. He has never been charged with anything in Florissant until now. On Tuesday July 12, 2016 Florissant Police arrived at my home for my son Jordan Jackson and never stated why they were looking for him. At this time there was not an active warrant in the system for him but one Florissant officer took pictures of his clothing in the home and his shoes without a search warrant. They came back on 2 separate occasions and I did inform them that he would turn himself in or I would turn him in for questioning. They said ok and returned to my home on July 15, 2016 to take him into custody. Jordan was never read his rights before handcuffed and placed into custody. Never. They never did state what this matter was regarding to Jordan nor myself at all before incarcerating him. M y son was taken into custody by Florissant police & immediately questioned and exercised his right to the 5th Amendment during the interrogation which states the following; “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation. “ Self-Incrimination The Fifth Amendment protects criminal defendants from having to testify if they may incriminate themselves through the testimony. A witness may "plead the Fifth" and not answer if the witness believes answering the question may be self-incriminatory. In the landmark Miranda v. Arizona ruling, the United States Supreme Court extended the Fifth Amendment protections to encompass any situation outside of the courtroom that involves the curtailment of personal freedom. 384 U.S. 436 (1966). Therefore, any time that law enforcement takes a suspect into custody, law enforcement must make the suspect aware of all rights. Known as Miranda rights, these rights include the right to remain silent, the right to have an attorney present during questioning, and the right to have a government-appointed attorney if the suspect cannot afford one. If law enforcement fails to honor these safeguards, courts will often suppress any statements by the suspect as violative of the Fifth Amendment's protection against self-incrimination, provided that the suspect has not actually waived the rights. An actual waiver occurs when a suspect has made the waiver knowingly, intelligently, and voluntarily. To determine if a knowing, intelligent and voluntary waiver has occurred, a court will examine the totality of the circumstances, which considers all pertinent circumstances and events. If a suspect makes a spontaneous statement while in custody prior to being made aware of the Miranda rights, law enforcement can use the statement against the suspect, provided that police interrogation did not prompt the statement. My son is currently being charged with 2nd Degree Burglary that he did not do and is being wrongfully accused. My son has informed me while being interrogated by Florissant Police that they hit him several times and made his head hit the wall. He also stated that one detective said to him that when they catch up with his friend “D.G.” (name undisclosed) they were going to quote unquote “Kill His Ass” and they hope he puts his hand in his pocket so they can justify killing him. WOW! This is horrible and this type of police conduct has to stop. Even if they are investigating something does not give them the right to beat my son nor threaten another childs life. This is illegal and unjust means of police misconduct and this particular officer needs to be evaluated for racial profiling and excessive force against African American young males. At this time we are asking for your kind donation of $25 or more to go towards legal fees for Jordan before this child ends up hung in a cell like many of the other innocent African Americans have across the nation. Please keep in mind these funds are not refundable this is an in-kind donation on his behalf. God bless and thank you and thank you for your support. Sincerely, Concerned Parent of Jordan Jackson
