“Anti-jail activist Elisabeth Epps is going to jail.”

I wish this headline was inaccurate, but it isn’t. denverite.com/2018/08/22/ant…

Thank you @Allan_Tellis @Denverite @KevinJBeaty @daveburdick for telling my story thru words, research, and images. In June 2018 this young brother, M. Howard, was kind enough to let us post the $10 bond (you read right) holding him in jail. In August 2018 he spoke on my behalf.

“Black revolutionary type shit…like a Tupac or something” gotta be top-5 accolades I could ever receive.😆✊🏾

Here is the video of 5 Sept 2015. For these 10 minutes I was sentenced to 90 days jail, set to report to jail 27 Aug 2018. What we did was help a young man who'd had a terrible experience get home safe; cops called that "interfering with an investigation." facebook.com/elisabethepps/… I know how many racists, misogynists, and other mean people will be cruel because I've shared this. But I encourage you to watch at 3 minutes left, when I incredibly politely ask if I can get my things and leave, and am told yes, how then Aurora cops follow and antagonize me.

I cannot articulate how much and how often I wish I were better at just turning a blind eye, looking the other way, ignoring people. I get on my own nerves not being able to just ignore certain situations. Tonight is one of those nights. I’d landed at America’s busiest airport some time after midnight. I found myself a lil couch, absolutely filthy but I guess that’s why it was available. I kicked away as much of the food waste as I could, at least I could lay down (albeit in a fetal position), but it’d do.
