National Black Church Initiative President Rev. Anthony Evans and 150,000 Black Churches Are Demanding That The Unidentified Miami Policeman Who Handcuffed Dr. Armen Henderson Be Fired And Investigated For Violating Dr. Henderson’s Civil Rights

What the Hell is going on!

Washington, DC – The National Black Church Initiative (NBCI), a faith-based coalition of 34,000 churches comprised of 37 denominations and 26.7 million African Americans with an additional 116,000 sister churches, is demanding that the unidentified police who handcuffed Dr. Armen Henderson be fired and NBCI will be sending a letter to United States Attorney General William Barr asking for an investigation into Dr. Henerson Civil Rights.

Rev. Anthony Evans, President of the National Black Church Initiative says “ we are demanding that that Policeman be fired and if not then the city of Miami can expect the largest protest in the history of this country shortly after this pandemic. The only reason for the cop action is race. The cop is a God-hating racist”

Miami Police Department is under fire after a video surfaced of an officer handcuffing and detaining an African-American doctor outside his home on Friday. The man, Armen Henderson, was wearing a mask and preparing for a volunteer shift helping protect homeless people from the spread of COVID-19, when a patrol car pulled up to his home.

Surveillance video from Dr. Henderson’s house shows him loading a van with supplies before the encounter. Dr. Henderson says the police officer handcuffed him after accusing him of littering and then asking for identification, which Henderson did not have on him. The officer was not wearing a mask; Dr. Henderson was. He had to yell to his wife inside their home to present identification before the officer finally released him. On Saturday, Miami police chief has ordered an internal investigation into the incident. The officer involved has not been identified.
