He's innocent! This is complete bs, arresting innocent people over false accusation. They should arrest the man who told this lie and hold everybody if thats the case. And seeing as henry is innocent they should have been let him go. There's not even evidence and yall have a INNOCENT young black man looking guilty as a criminal which he is not.
