September 3rd, 2013 friends, family and supports gathered at the home of the Anderson’s to stop the unlawful eviction of there home. The Police were scheduled to be at the Anderson residence between 9 and 10 am. The police presence was heavy (the usual for Baltimore PD) for one family BUT no arrests took place. The sheriff came with there landlord to serve the warrant luckily they had enough from the community and donations to hold off a little bit longer.
“On October 1st, 2012 — Anthony Anderson Sr. was brutally killed by Baltimore police officers on the early evening of Sept. 21 in front of his family, including his 2-year-old and 9-year-old grandchildren, his children and his mother. Both grandchildren continue to have nightmares.
In an investigation conducted by the Baltimore Peoples Assembly, countless witnesses described how “knockers” — a term used by the community to identify undercover narcotics police — ran up behind Anderson, grabbed him around the knees, hoisted him in the air and brutally slammed him to the ground. Anderson was a small man who weighed about 135 pounds.
Most believe that he died on the scene, handcuffed, prior to being transported to the hospital. Some describe Anderson convulsing with seizures; others stated that police tried to prop up his limp and lifeless body in order to remove him from the area.
The police immediately claimed that Anderson choked and died after trying to swallow a bag of drugs. All community witnesses agree that this is a lie. A leaked autopsy report, broadcast by WBAL TV investigative reporter Jane Miller, states that Anderson had no drugs in his system and that he suffered from a massive ruptured spleen and two broken ribs. Even before the autopsy was leaked, police had to admit that nothing was in Anderson’s airway.*”
