Shannon Zach Nyamodi had just graduated from high school April of 2012 and had a plan for his life. A plan that was changed one night on August 6, 2012. Nyamodi had just from a gig his band played and was asleep in his car outside of a friend’s house when he heard gunshots and saw a white woman was running down the street and screaming for help. The woman was screaming because her daughter had hired someone to come and kill her.
Her daughter 15 went on Facebook searching for someone to kill her mother.
Nyamodi, doing what any good person would do, went toward the woman to help her and find out what was going on. A white young male leapt from the house and ran. Nyamodi helped call 911 for the woman. The police come and take care of woman, hearing her side of the story and taking a statement from the young boy.
The next day, despite the woman telling them that her daughter set her up and that the person that shot her was a white male and clearly not Nyamodi, the police took this young man and placed him in jail! This young boy has been there since 2012. It has been over a year and I am just now hearing about this. I don’t know what this boy has gone through. Despite all the evidence stating that the boy is innocent, the police refuse to let him go. They are trying to pin this on him mostly likely it is one of the sheriffs or officers little murdering psychopath sons and they are trying to cover their ass instead of letting them rot.
The white boy responsible has been found on social media and the gun used to shoot the woman and the money taken from her has been given to the sheriff but Nyamodi has not been released! Please lets spread the word and get this out there. We have to be the ones to protect our children because no one else will do it for us. Justice for Shannon Zach Nyamodi, now!
What was this young boys crime? Helping a woman that could have been killed? Doing what any good person would do? Being compassionate, caring, and humane? His crime was not being the criminal, he is supposed to be due to his black skin. He should have never been placed in jail nor should he be charged with a crime he did not commit. He will not become another Troy Davis or Trayvon Martin, he will not be made to look like a criminal instead of a victim. Justice for Shannon Zach Nyamodi NOW!!!
