Action Alert:
Tell Houston Authorities to Charge Man who Threatened Reading Event

The Freed-Montrose Library in Houston was about to start a Drag Queen Storytime event on Saturday, January 26, 2019, when Donald Trump supporter James “Doc” Greene, Sr. barged in with a loaded, concealed handgun on his body.  Greene was already banned from entering the library “for filming children” and causing “disturbances.”

Greene believes and promotes conspiracy theories about library events that involve drag queens reading to children.

Library management asked Greene to leave the premises. He refused, so they called the Houston Police Department. Officers arrived and ended up handcuffing and detaining Greene after he refused multiple commands to go to his car. At one point in a phone video taken by Greene, he can be heard telling officers, “We have a bunch of homosexuals that are molesting children. They are doing it with your help.” Greene’s handgun was confiscated, but he was allowed to go to a hospital without arrest when he complained of chest pains. No charges have been brought.

Two days after the incident at the library, Greene posted a video in which he claimed he was “arrested for being a white Christian.” He accused a librarian of being a “satanist” and said, “This cannot stand, we must fight back.” Greene hosts a programme on Raging Elephants Radio, a conservative online station in Texas.

Please contact Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo and District Attorney Kim Ogg and give them the following message, personalized to your liking:

Please bring charges against James “Doc” Greene, Sr. after his threatening behavior at the Freed-Montrose Library on January 26, 2019 and KEEP HIS GUN. This man is a ticking time bomb who will eventually shoot someone, or multiple people. He was banned originally from the library for photographing children and is known to go armed. This situation MUST be rectified in order to provide for public safety in Houston. Charge him AT A MINIMUM with the crime of trespassing—but hopefully with a more serious crime that would involve the permanent confiscation of his firearms. I am very concerned about the safety of all those patronizing Houston’s libraries. You have a chance to intervene here before serious harm is done. Please seize it. I will be watching your actions in this case closely.
