Hephzibah Police Gets an ‘F’ from YouTuber for Detaining Man for Singing in Public

Last month, Jefferson accepted the services of a public defender when he appeared in court.

Audit The Audit is a channel created to “sort out the who and what and the right and wrong of police interactions,” according to the creators.

The channel explores the legal intricacies surrounding interactions between citizens and law enforcement officers as well as the laws, ordinances, and policies which dictate their authority. They “use videos of police interactions to demonstrate the complex narrative of law and educate citizens on their rights and the do’s and don’t’s of police contact.”

Ultimately, the channel gave Hephzibah Police a grade of F for “arresting Mr. Jefferson as he attempted to gather Officer Tucker’s information, displaying a fundamental misunderstanding of free speech and for failing to employ any measure of de-escalation.”
