In light of the three UCLA basketball players LiAngelo Ball, Jalen Hill and Cody Riley arrested for shoplifting in China, but ultimately released after President Donald Trump stepped, there is another American still waiting for justice. Wendell Brown and his story has been circulating around the internet over the last week due to high profile case of UCLA players.
Wendell Brown is an American currently imprisoned in China for a crime he seemingly did not commit. Brown played football at Ball State University, in the CFL, Arena League, and even an American Football League in China. He was in China working as a trainer and coach when a fight broke out at a bar and he was accused of hitting a local and injuring him.
Brown has been imprisoned for 14 months sitting in a Chinese detention center and has already had his trial back in July of 2017. The case against him is allegedly non-existent and his innocence was allegedly proven at his trial. No verdict has been rendered as of yet and there is no time table on when to expect a verdict.
As stated earlier Brown has been incarcerated for 14 months and faces 10 years in a Chinese prison if found guilty. Wendell Brown is American being falsely accused of a crime he didn’t commit on foreign soil. This is a call to action to anyone who reads this article to reach out to your Senator and the State Department on Wendell’s behalf. This is a call to action to President Trump to use his relationship with Chinese leadership to help this American (who has never been arrested or convicted of a crime before) to come home to his friends and family.
Use social media, get on the phone, send an email whatever you can do. We have enough divisiveness in this country lets get behind the idea of bringing home one of our brothers who was only trying to represent his family, friends, and country in a foreign place, doing what he loves. According to reports Brown’s resolve has been strong, so lets do something for him, before his resolve fades.
