Afdal Azam Leach by all accounts is a gifted, intelligent caring young man who has been nothing but an asset to his community leading a productive life. However, his life would be turned upside down when an encounter with Kannapolis police resulted in the 19 yr old man being charged with possessing weapons of mass destruction, resisting arrest and the concealment of deadly weapons.
The charges do not tell the entire story and now it appears that his entire family is being targeted and terrorized by local officials. Tonight I am joined by Afdal’s father Mr. Jessie Leach and family advocate Tina Phifer who alerted us to the case.
