Robert Morss

Morss and others attempted to push the fence which police were holding to separate them from the crowd. He said to officers: “You guys are betraying us. You get paid enough to betray your people.”

He held a yellow Gadsden flag as the crowd advanced toward the West Terrace archway. People there were subjected to police brutalities. Morss yelled into the crowd for protesters to pick up fallen shields and pass them towards the archway so people there could form a wall against police.

Please keep in mind that in the United States, every citizen charged with a crime is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
