Video Update: Tony Soto; Black Man, Activist, Father & Victim of Racism in PA Legal System

If you are not aware of my trying to raise awareness about Tony Soto, a Black man -father, son, activist,…- you can catch up by clicking here for some of my former posts on his case.

I am happy to say Tony has been…set semi free from the illegitimate, wrongful capture of a then father to be (he was unable to witness the birth of his only son). As if that moment stolen were not painful enough, he lost his beautiful and loving mother to stage 4 cancer while wrongfully locked up, with no hearings, no trial dates, a bond of $900,000.00…

Why? What happened? Why does *he* matter so much?
And, what is his status now?

The video below explains…I know it’s a bit lengthy, but this is very important; it is a man who has fought for other people life I am trying to update everyone on… So please excuse length…

And, the link I refer to also will explain anything you may have to ask also. Make sure you share that link; we need to raise funds to help this man…
Feel free to ask me anything, and I will try to get it answered.

 

From his site:
“UPDATE:  The crowdfund has been lowered from $10,000.00 to $7,500.00 because Tony’s fiance sold his motorcycle for $2500.00.   

Aren’t  the Philadelphia Police and Prosecutors Just Doing Their Job?  They Are Not Corrupt…. Are they?

Tony Soto Black Man & Activist Held on $900,000 for NO REASON! Please SHARE!

While I was preparing to re-post information on Tony Soto, I came across one of the last videos he posted on YouTube and oddly, it’s directed towards anyone who is struggling. He now -for NO REASON– sits behind bars on a $900,000 bond…  (For more videos by Tony Soto not included on his YouTube account or for more information, please see below.) I had to repost it and no matter if you aren’t religious, are like me and not religious but spiritual, or simply do not believe in anything; his good heart and character for others shines like he always has as a friend and activist…

And from my older posts… Or you can read it all on one page by clicking here.


“… We are asking for your help and support in this crowdfund to help him with his bond and to retain competent counsel.  Funded Justice specializes in Crowdfunding for legal matters.  Please donate and share this Crowdfunding.

His first son was born in his first son was born in his absence this past Sat June 25, 2016.  He has yet to see or hold his newborn and I am suffering with stage 4 pancreatic cancer.  For the past two years my son has dilgently marched for civil rights and has tried to make sure people know their rights when pulled over in a vehicle. He has been outspoken and vocal in regards to the blatant police brutality and police corruption sweeping this nation.  Now he is being falsely held in a Phila prison.  If this had happened to any one of you, Tony would have already been organizing on your behalf immediately.  We thank you for your support. God Bless.”- Tony Soto’s mother

The sites I’m linking have the videos of the police stalking, harassment and mistreatment are posted in the above link which I posted a couple of days ago. So below are the links I’ve previously made when he was free, in order. Videos of importance are on all, one of them I believe I made a video but there is a link to his facebook video on there….

Each video shows not only the Philly police disrespecting him, but obviously targeting him, especially if you check out more of his videos (again that is linked in one of the posts too, I believe it’s the first). His  previous videos of harassment and fear tactics being used, each link is below.. thank you and please, please help this good man, his mom, those whom care for him and the community needs him, too…

Please, help. – Tony Soto’s Mother  (click here to donate)

Please,  HELP…

  1. Click Here for my First Post & Tony’s videos – In this post, I also had made a video  on white privilege inspired by Tony, at the end I speak of his case and there is a link in the video description as well as in the following article that just takes you right to his facebook video page.
  2. Click here for the second entry and his videos are located ON the page. This is during an absurd police stop….. Better put, it was during an attempted set up, but as you’ll see, he is smarter than they want and doesn’t fall into their trap. Later, despite his video evidence the cops try to lie and blame it on him…. Despite the videos.
  3. Videos and photos of more police harassing and stalking, shows all of Tony’s actions; none of which are of a man who would do something to deserve this. Not the abuse, and sure as hell not this $900,000.00 bond!!!
  4. And my most recent blog on him.

And please click here to read his mother’s words, and please, help us get this man and activist back out where he belongs. The power belongs to the people…. Let’s exercise that….. Please, PLEASE share this..

 

Tony Soto, Black Male & Activist, Being Wrongfully Held No Trial; $900,000.00 Bond!

“… falsely arrested in response to an incident which occured on May 18,2016 with an off duty police office. Tony has been held since May 18, in a Phila prison on an outrageously absurb $900,000.00 bond and has not had an hearing yet. The PPD has fraudulently manufactured a case on Tony and has him unlawfully detained on an unreasonable bond to keep him from adaquetly defending himself.”- Tony Soto’s mother 

Yeah you saw the number right; $900,000.00 bond, and her son is not just an educated Black male; he is an activist who has fought for civil rights and equality in Philadelphia, PA, for years. He’s a caring person; please help spread the his story! 

Not only is he an activist, but Tony’s also a friend of mine; I know his personality and the videos I share below his mother’s link and information will prove to you too that Tony knows what he’s talking about; that’s the real reason they’ve locked him up, to silence him. There are no allegations the police can make to justify holding him without trial on $900,000.00 bail! 

He knows how to respect police and wouldn’t do anything that he knows would put him away; this is an attempt to silence him; please don’t let that happen!!!  And let me add, as you’ll see if you watch his videos, that respect he gives is met with harassment and intimidation, numerous times by the Philadelphia police.

“The cops responded on local news claiming the allegations made was done with the intent to and I quote,“bait the police.”… No, I’m not joking.”- Police use blame “game” when the media questions them over  Tony’s video recorded harassment. 

 He has many of these on video; in fact I wrote a couple of posts with those videos regarding the police harassment he was going through. Please, please help anyway you can… Even if it’s simply share. Remember, Black Lives Matter; that includes the lives of those living and being wronged; especially for someone who has spent so much of his time helping others. 

The first post is here and includes videos an insane and uncalled for traffic stop which he recorded. It is vivid evidence of the Philly cops targeting him with harassment and intimidation tactics. Being a a young, educated Black man…who knows his rights and stood up for the rights of others as well came with a price; after a set up. 900,000.00 bail! . <!–  The following two quotes are from Tony’s videos in the post I mentioned above, first, a small piece from his convo with a rude cop:

We’re going to stop all this nonsense with you guys down here- just stopping people and doing whatever you want so that’s done, those days are over.”-Tony

“I’m glad you think you’re changing the world.” -Cop
“No sir actually, let me explain something to you, I’m not changing the world okay, I’m professional, and we’re going to change it one person at a time.”-Tony

And as he later sat in his car waiting for the cops to come back over and say he could leave. He had been stopped by the cops and harassed, treated with no respect or kindness, and the police end up sitting in the squad car until, for whatever reason, they decided to simply drive off… Before this though, as he awaits the officers return:

“I’m going to set my phone back down before I get shot and they say that I’m reaching for something.” – Tony says to the camera sitting, waiting and wondering why the cop suddenly -and strangely- decided to move to the other side of the street without speaking to him again during his ‘traffic stop’. 

The cops ended up trying to make him into a villain on local media which Tony made a video response about:

 Fox29 News After Story Aired; very interesting. The cops responded on local news claiming the allegations made was done with the intent to and I quote,“bait the police.”… No, I’m not joking.

As he says in this video,[paraphrased] the last time he checked, it was the police officers who stopped him, not the other way around.
He goes on to say he isn’t anti-police; however all forms of abuse the police participate in or commit is BLATANTLY WRONG.

As he states regarding the illegal traffic stop and harassment by police, the video offers a prime example of one of the many ways in which police get away with behaving in any manner they desire.

The second post can be found by clicking here.  Again, he is harassed by police on video,  and also a lot of information from Tony himself.

Finally, almost a year ago, in this post  you can check out the last time I wrote about Tony’s situation; and I made a video on his behalf as well as to explain the sickness in white privilege, for this wouldn’t be happening to a white male. Not like this. 

Please donate, share and help get his story noticed. He’s been fighting for ALL targets of police killings and racism; now it’s our turn; please do whatever you can… Thank you…

Tony Soto’s Situation As Cop Continues Abuse Videos -Series-Part 2

Below will be my final post on Tony Soto until there is more news. I encourage you to follow him on Facebook and check his videos out. The rest of this post I am going to let him and his videos spread the word but first I will sum up the current issue. Currently, he is being harassed, stalked and he fears it won’t be long before he is caught without a camera and he will be the next victim of police racist, hate crimes. (Video below). Before I share the rest of the info, I must add; while filming the cops is very important, sadly even when there is a camera on it doesn’t mean the police will hesitate to kill, stalk, beat or anything else; as Tony Soto proves by himself.

Philly Police Caught In Act Plotting On Viral Philly Activist Tony Soto 8-5-15 iPhone

Far too many Americans put the police on a throne for some reason; some insane reason, they refuse to accept the truth, even when it is as in your face as many, many police brutality cases. That is an insult to every victim, activist on its own.  We must NEVER lose hope.

After his video went viral, Tony says he has been been receiving threats from cops. Given the videos and evidence, anyone should clearly be able to see he is speaking nothing but the truth; and sadly, tragically; he isn’t the only one.

On FaceBook he posted this photo not long after his vid went viral; anything suspicious to you?After his video went viral, Tony says he has been been receiving threats from cops. On facebook he posted this photo not long after his vid went viral; anything suspicious to you?

Tony posted a picture of a cop car outside of where he was. With the photo he stated: “Why r the police sitting outside of where I’m at? I’m not even home I just parked my car here seriously.”

[As seen in the photo he took which is located on the left.]

As he stated many times (and has now been proven correct):

I’m Targeted by Philadelphia Police,specially in the 15th district and officer Holloway.”

Finally, this is a video Tony Soto believes everyone needs to see… So, here goes…
