About 35 family members and concerned residents gathered at the home of Reverend Kenneth Freeman tonight for a press conference, led by the West Metro NAACP.

About 35 family members and concerned residents gathered at the home of Reverend Kenneth Freeman tonight for a press conference, led by the West Metro NAACP.

The NAACP contends Reverend Kenneth Freeman was unfairly tased in August of 2011 and then he and his son, Curtis Freeman, were charged with disorderly conduct and sent to jail Thursday. Reverend Freeman was fined $500, sentenced to six months probation and 10 days in jail. Curtis Freeman was fined $450, sentenced to six months probation and four days in jail.

In the attached video, Clay Mitchell, vice president of the West Metro NAACP said it's a sad day in Douglasville. He said Douglasville wanted retribution and to punish Reverend Freeman for having the audacity to not just pay his fine but to want his day in court.

In another attached video, Anita Freeman, wife and mother of the two arrested, cries and talks about the trauma caused to her family, calling everything that's happened, 'a living nightmare.'

Does any one know where I could see a video of the Reverend flopping around on the ground like a fish.

Rev and Family, my prayers are with you. None of these white people are Americans, they are indeed the immigrants. The fact the white race is on the brink of distinction, your population is dwindling fast, so called blacks are watering down your bloodline simply because your own white woman denounce your perceived presumptive power on this earth. Wake up racists your time is up, so called blacks through our Creator are taking this land back, and you the white immigrants will return to your respective colonies. You people are the weakest in our nation, cowards and perpetrators of the hell you live in. Obamanites? The nerve of you weaklings, your unraveling, the mere appearance of a melonated (black)man in power disrupts your ability to function. Your race is in a downward spiral. Douglasville and many other cities who you think will survive the obvious change in future of this country, is sadly mistaken. The Rev Freeman will be victorious, but moreso you racist whites, pretenders of religious, and American history game is up. The TRUTH IS OUT, and so are you. The tide has turned, and many of you will learn true history, "his"-story, vs "my"-story which you call "mystery" (mystory). The time is upon us, racist white folks beware, you will face the wrath of God, the disenigration of your race and forged history, but the return to power of the real aboriginal indegenous people of this land , you refer to as BLACK PEOPLE. Be prepared.

Mark, Please take the time to learn to use proper grammar and how to spell. Even then you will still come across as a complete nut case, but at least you won't look to be so uneducated.
