Jacksonville, FL - Activists in Jacksonville Florida have a lot to celebrate after the Florida Times Union reported June 1 that the state attorney was dropping the remaining charges on the #Jax5.

Connell Crooms and Dave Schneider had their charges dropped in full after the state attorney and Jacksonville Sheriff's Office failed to agree on what if anything they could possibly be charged with that would stick.

The remaining members of the Jax5, Christina Kittle, Toma Beckham and Willie Wilder, will face no jail time and no real punishment either.

This is a victory against police repression of activists. More analysis will follow in the coming days.
