‘AGT’ Kid Magician Kadan Rockett Posts Video Of His ‘Illegal Arrest’ And Demands Justice
Kadan Rockett, the ‘AGT’ kid magician who was arrested along with his sister Brooklyn Rockett on November 18, 2020, has once again spoken out. This time, he posted the arrest video and intends to use his platform to create change.
‘AGT’ Kid Magicians Kadan Rockett And Brooklyn Rockett Demand Justice
Kadan, 15 and Brooklyn 13, spent two nights in jail after police arrested them at their grandparent’s home in Louisiana. The pair have been living with their father in Los Angeles and were ordered by a judge to go live with their mother but they refused. In the video, the teens said they are afraid of what their mother Kami Lyn Rockett will do to them as they were taken away in handcuffs.
“Please go to the link in my bio, & watch the video of our illegal arrest! We did nothing wrong & are not charged with any crime” Kadan wrote on Instagram. “This should not happen to any kid, ever! A legal fund has been started to help us to get justice. Even $5 bucks helps because it all adds up! My Sis, @brooklynrockett & I are prepared to stand up for kids everywhere to use our platform to create change so this NEVER happens to any innocent kid again.”
“This is not about a custody battle between parents, this is about us being innocent teens abused by an out-of-control Missouri Judge who set this all in motion.” But this isn’t the first time that the two were put behind bars for this same reason. “This is the SECOND time he has locked us up in just over a year! He is WRONG, the Supreme Court has now said so and we are old enough to stand up for our rights and make choices about our future” Kadan continued.
A Fundraiser Was Set Up For Kadan And Brooklyn
Emily Truman, a witness to the arrest started a GoFundMe for Kadan and Brooklyn’s legal fees. “Those poor kids were terrified, crying and it is just WRONG for them to have used force on them after all they have been through,” she wrote on the fundraiser page. “They refused to listen to what the kids were telling them and did not use the discretion that they should have when faced with a situation like this.” Contrary to most media reports, the fundraiser page says the pair spent two full days and nights in jail.
She also described the conditions that the kid magicians had to endure in their cells. “Kadan and Brooklyn were harassed and deprived of sleep until nearly 4 am when they were finally placed in their cells only to be woken up at 6 am for ‘breakfast!’ Kadan reported a cockroach in his cell and not being able to sleep because of loud banging and people yelling in the cells around him.” A major celebrity who wished to remain anonymous has promised to double any donations made to the page.
Kadan and Brooklyn previously competed on ‘AGT’ with a magic act that Simon Cowell loved. He said that they had “fantastic showmanship.” Howie Mandel applauded the concept for the act and its originality. The pair made it to the Semi-Finals before they were eliminated from the competition.
