Lawyers Demand Fed Charges For White Men Who Shot At Black FedEx Driver
Lawyers For Black FedEx Driver Demand Attempted Murder Charges For White Men Who Chased & Shot At Him [VIDEO]
“I proceed to leave the driveway. As I’m leaving the driveway, he starts driving in the grass trying to cut me off. My instincts kick in, I swerve around him, and I start hitting the gas trying to get out of the neighborhood,” Gibson told the Mississippi Free Press in an interview.
“I drive down about two or three houses. There’s another guy standing in the middle of the street pointing a gun at my windows and signaling to me to stop with his hands, as well as mouthing the word, ‘Stop.’ I shake my head no, I hide behind the steering wheel, and I swerve around him as well. As I swerve around him, he starts firing shots into my vehicle.”
“I reached dispatch and let him know what was going on, and I only had a chance to get a little of the story out when he cut me off and he was like, ‘Were you at this address?’ I said yes. He was like, well I just got a call of a suspicious person at this address. I was like, ‘Sir, I’m not a suspicious person, I work for FedEx. I was just doing my job,” Gibson said.
Not only did FedEx advise Gibson to return to the office instead of going to the police, but they also expected him to complete the rest of his deliveries for the day. When he reported the attempted lynching to Brookhaven police that same day, a White officer asked what Gibson did to “look suspicious.” Police Chief Kenny Collins, who is Black, “tried to emphasize how unracist the town (of Brookhaven) was, which seemed odd.” Another officer took Gibson back to the crime scene and put him to work searching for bullet fragments instead.
“Because if the roles were reversed, and he’d done this to them, he would have been immediately arrested for attempted murder and gone to jail that same night,” Moore said about his client. “He wouldn’t have been allowed to wait a week to turn himself in.”
