Jordan Maxwell Corbin was born and raised in Manhattan, New York. Around 2007 he moved to Omaha with his mother.

His mother left Omaha when she was only 17 years old to work as a model, one of the first models to leave Omaha.

Then one day she wanted to provide a safer environment for Maxwell moving back home.

“I got into a fight, she got scared and she said you are moving to Omaha Nebraska with me,” Maxwell, says.

He is another one of the eight plaintiffs who are participating in the collective lawsuit against the city of Omaha, the chief, and the captain of the police, because of the mass arrest that happened in Farnam street at the end of July.

Maxwell is 28 and he is an activist. He is another one of the eight plaintiffs who are participating in the collective lawsuit against the city of Omaha, the chief, and the captain of the police, because of the mass arrest that happened in Farnam street at the end of July.  

Previously KVNO spoke with Alexander Mathews or Bear and for him and Maxwell the police acted with unreasonable arrests and excessive force resulting in injury and trauma.

From the county jail, Maxwell was contacted to provide information that would help with the lawsuit.

ACLU of Nebraska Executive Director Danielle Conrad said the new lawsuit is an important tactic in the organization’s overall efforts to promote police accountability and racial justice.

On the day of the arrests, Maxwell describes the march as one of the best and peacefully almost reached its end.

“As I said before too, like people…there were not any problems.”

The lawsuit names a diverse group of eight plaintiffs, including protesters, bystanders, a legal observer, and three journalists, according to Bear. All of them were detained or arrested in the Farnam Street March.

For Maxwell, regardless of the outcome of the lawsuit, he thinks this year has been a good year for the BLM movement.

He also knows that in the protests, things have arisen that he wished will not happen, such as riots and disorders.

That is why he is always recommending to everyone  a very important aspect that will contribute to the BLM movement

He also thinks that American history should be written differently.
