Black Lives Matter PA Activist Asa Khalif Arrested During Protest Outside Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office

Black Lives Matter Pennsylvania activist Asa Khalif was arrested Monday after he broke a window during a protest at the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office in Philadelphia.

Khalif and another protester showed up at the office on S. 12th Street unannounced Monday morning and demanded answers regarding Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s open investigation of the deadly police shooting of David Jones, Shapiro’s spokesperson Joe Grace told NBC10.

Grace said Khalif was told he needed to schedule a meeting but had refused to do so.

“Attorney General Shapiro has publicly stated when the investigation has concluded he will announce a decision,” Grace wrote. “Recently, Mr. Khalif was directly advised of that fact. We take this investigation seriously, appreciate its importance to the community, and are conducting a thorough review of the facts and the law.”

A video of the incident posted on Facebook shows Khalif and a colleague inside the Attorney General’s Office repeatedly asking why the investigation was “taking so long.”
