Henry Tarrio, known as "Enrique" has pleaded with the Judge to be released early from prison claiming inhumane conditions, stating: “I’ve been to jail before and what I’ve seen here, I’ve never seen anywhere else."

Enrique was sentenced to serve five months in jail for the burning of a BLM flag that was stolen from a church, but is requesting a reduced stay of only 90 days.
