Since Lyons is back in jail, MSBF has the option to file a claim to get back the $ 40,000 it has put on its bond. MSBF defines itself as an “anti-prison, anti-racist, and anti-capitalist” organization that opposes the pre-trial cash bail system and says its money comes from donations.
Lyons is among 16 people, including 15 adults and a child, charged in connection with the riot that caused $ 2 million in damage and cost to the city. He was the fifth person ordered to appear in court.
Grand Rapids police are looking for more people they say caused damage during the riot. In July, they posted dozens of photos from social media posts, security cameras, and news feeds, hoping that the public would name more suspects.
