Memphis Cop-Killer Tremaine Wilbourn Turns Himself In – Supporters Chant “Free T!”
Wilbourn was on “supervisory release” (for a 121 month sentence) for a bank robbery according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
Last night Tremaine’s supporters attacked reporters and chanted “Free T!” outside his grandmother’s apartment.
According to WLBT, Wilbourn turned himself into U.S. Marshals at the federal building in Memphis just before 5 p.m., at the same time that a large SWAT team presence began to form in South Memphis near the apartment complex where Wilbourn’s grandmother lives.
People near the scene were chanting, “Free T,” frustrated by the arrest. They even directed some violence towards WMC Action News 5 crews, threatening them. The situation eventually calmed down.
