Michael Tarif & Evelyn Warren
In a courtroom filled with supporters, as has been the case since the Warrens were initially assaulted, arrested, and brought to court a year ago, the District Attorney found inadequate basis for proceeding with the case against Tarif and Evelyn Warren. All charges were thus dropped. Cheers, hugs, kisses, and even some tears of joy followed as the courtroom emptied into the street for a brief rally. Both Tarif and Evelyn thanked everyone for being so steadfast in their support and, particularly expressed deep gratitude and love for their lawyers — Soffiyah Elijah, Susan Tipograph, and Roger Warren. A battle was won, was the consensus, but the war goes on!
All Power To The People!
Attorney Michael Tarif Warren and his wife Evelyn were driving along Vanderbilt Avenue around 6:00 pm, when they witnessed NYPD officers “kicking and stomping” a handcuffed young black man. The Warrens pulled over to help. Mr. Warren said “We saw a young kid being chased by a horde of policemen across a McDonald’s parking lot. They tackled him and immediately put handcuffs on him. Then Sergeant Talvy, who appeared to be in charge, began kicking him in the head and ribs, and stomping him on the neck.” The other police officers followed suit.
