This information is incorrect. It is a set up. Someone created a social media account under Martinez and used his name to commit this crime. The "alleged man" who was arrested had nothing to do with this incident or the group that did this. If investigators would further investigate they would figure this out. The victim is not being honest. There is a lot of information that is not being looked into. Just because a person is "connected" with other incidents, it doesn't mean he committed this crime. I hope they do figure out who did it for sure!

#defundthepolice #supportkidnappingminors #blm - did I miss anything?
What do you think happens to protecting your teen son or daughter from predators when you defund the police?
Please pick one, it's a simple multiple choice:
a) Reduce crime
b) Defund police
You cannot chose both. Errr, your time is up. See you in Novermber.
