Uriah Inkenge Taakhaar of AADL is arrested at his home just days before the verdict not to indict the officer who killed Eric Garner. Mauricelm-Lei Millere lead advisor and captain of African American Defense League stated, “Uriah was arrested because certain forces fear his influence as a youth leader. The charges of assault to an officer was a trumped up charge to get him away from those he was most influential. This is a strong young brother who has the power to transform thought to action. I was not there to lead with him on the preceding campaign but watch him on the news while I was speaking before integrated groups seeking to build coalitions. Of course we are in Ferguson now to take care of our brother and restore him home.” African American Defense League – Bridgette Anderson reporting, Black Nationalist Network News, November 06, 2014
