Michigan woman who organized anti-violence march now faces gun charges

In June a woman organized an anti-violence march in Saginaw, Michigan. Now she faces gun charges.

From MLive:
Months after organizing an anti-violence march in the wake of a several shootings in the city, a Saginaw woman faces gun charges after police allege she threatened an employee at a salon.

Sparkle N. Roby, 34, on Wednesday, Sept. 18, appeared in Saginaw County District Court for arraignment on three counts of felony firearm and single counts of felonious assault, carrying a concealed weapon, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, and felon in possession of a firearm.

Prosecutors say Roby on July 22 had an altercation with an employee at Unique Styles Beauty Salon in Saginaw and said she’d come back with a gun. She left the business, then returned with a pistol and waved it around, yelling for the employee, prosecutors allege.

Roby left the salon when she heard police were being called, prosecutors said. No one was injured, but police said several people were in the salon at the time.
Roby denies the charges.

“Sparkle”, eh? We have people like her organizing these “peace marches” and “peace rallies” all the time in Chicago. Just another ghetto hustle.
