Over-the-Top Georgia Cops Arrest 70 Partygoers After No One 'Fesses Up to Owning Less Than an Ounce of Weed

Alternet - Tue, 01/02/2018 - 23:33
Dozens of people spent 48 hours in jail in this case of police abuse of power.

Early on the morning of December 31, 2017, police in the Atlanta suburb of Cartersville arrested 70 people at a house party because no one would claim ownership of a stash of marijuana that totaled less than an ounce.

As The Cartersville Daily Tribune reported, Cartersville police responded to a “shots fired” call around 2:18 AM on New Year’s Eve at a “Christmas Lingerie Party,” and soon found the marijuana.

Jail records acquired by the Daily Tribune showed that 63 of the 70 arrestees had all been processed with a single count of marijuana possession under one ounce.

The report also noted that most of the people arrested are men aged 19-25, many of whom had been “star athletes” at the local high school.

After the arrests, parents of the some of the people arrested at the party told Fox 5 Atlanta that they were frustrated by the lack of information surrounding the mass arrests.

“We just want our babies,” one of the parents, Monesha Fezzia, told Fox 5 on December 31. “They aren’t telling us anything.”

On Tuesday, Tyisha Fernandes, a reporter for Atlanta’s WSB-TV, tweeted that some of the arrestees are just now being released over 48 hours after their New Year’s Eve arrests.
