Trial canceled in shooting of England’s BLM leader because witnesses refuse to snitch

No Snitching in London's Black community

Sasha Johnson was critically injured and nearly died on May 23rd, 2021, when she was shot in a Southwark Borough neighborhood of London. She was attending a house party when four Black males opened fire on guests.

Johnson is a high-profile leader of Black Lives Matter and the New Black Panther Party in England. In the weeks before the shooting, Johnson had been hyping a fictional narrative that her life was in danger from White “racists.”

Prince Dixon, 25, Troy Reid, 20, Cameron Deriggs, 19, and Devonte Brown, 19, were charged with conspiracy to murder and possession of a firearm and ammunition with intent to endanger life. Police pegged them as the perpetrators because of text messages they sent each other.

The trial of the four suspects was scheduled to begin on March 7th, 2022. The trial has been canceled, and the charges were officially dropped on February 28th. Prosecutors say they have no case because witnesses refuse to talk. No one wants to be the one who “snitches.”

Sasha Johnson remains in the hospital to this day.

Black Lives Matter leaders have been murdered in the USA. 

On November 23, 2020, high-profile Louisville BLM leader Hamza “Travis” Nagdy was shot and killed. The FBI says the shooting was motivated by a desire to steal the victim’s car. Ashton Nally was arrested and charged with the crime. The victim and the perpetrator are both mixed race.

Oluwatoyin Salau was the BLM leader in Tallahassee, FL. She tweeted about being sexually harassed while leaving a BLM rally she organized. Then she went missing. She was later found dead along with another 75-year-old woman who was murdered. Aaron Glee Jr., a 49-year-old black male, was charged with the murders.
