End Qualified Immunity

February 10, 2022

Andrew Joseph III was a 14-year-old Black teen attending “Student Day” at the Florida State Fair in Tampa back in 2014. After sheriff deputies racially targeted, harassed, physically searched, and unjustly removed Andrew from the fair, making no attempt to contact the middle-schooler’s parents, Andrew was dropped off on the side of a busy interstate 2 miles from the fair. And right before they dropped him off, they took a mugshot-style photo of him. In an attempt to find his way back home, crossing the interstate, Andrew was hit and killed by a white motorist, who was never breathalyzed or held by law enforcement. To this day no one from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has been held accountable.
