A social media post by Shermaine Gunter-Gary reads, “It is time we come together and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!”

A flyer is circulating around Atlantic City, New Jersey and the internet.

It reads:


for a rally in support of

  • Mayor Marty Small
  • Superintendent, Dr. Laquetta Small
  • Principal, Constance Days-Chapman

Tuesday, April 9, 2024, 5:00 p.m. at the Civil Rights Garden, Pacific Avenue & S. Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd., Atlantic City, NJ 08401.

The flyer includes a long list of prominent figures who will be attending as follows:

  • Rev. Steffie Bartley, National Action Network, Regional Director.
  • Leroy Jones, State Chairman, New Jersey State Democratic Committee.
  • Kaleem Shabazz, NAACP of Atlantic City, President.
  • Pastor Amir Khan, Nehemiah Group.
  • Imam Amin Muhammad, Masjid Muhammad, Atlantic City.
  • Bishop R. Fulton Hargrove, ll, Fellowship of Churches of Atlantic City and Vicinity.
  • Pastor Jerry Smith, Transcend Worship Center.
  • Rev. Derrick L. Green, Interfaith Action Movement.

Steve Young, who is the President of the National Action Network of South Jersey is not supporting the Small’s and Days-Chapman.

Atlantic City Mayor Marty Small held a press conference on April 1, 2024, with Edwin Jacobs, who is his criminal defense attorney.

Many believe that this was a preemptive strike to try and get ahead of potential bad news that may be in his future.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office had no substitutive public comments about the Small - Jacobs press conference; except to confirm their professionalism and propriety of the search warrants that they executed at the Small’s residence on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

However, shortly thereafter, the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office followed with a press release about April being National Child Abuse Awareness month.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office has previously confirmed that Days-Chapman has been criminally charged with:

  • second-degree Official Misconduct.
  • third-degree Hindering Apprehension of Another.
  • fourth-degree Obstruction of Justice.
  • disorderly persons Failure to Report Child Abuse.

I have spoken with several prominent Atlantic City stakeholders, none of whom want to go on the public record by name for fear of Marty Small retaliation.

Each mentioned that the Small's repeated preemptive strikes appear to be suspicious.

Also, they each questioned where were all of these people who are listed in this rally lineup event when children were previously being abused in Atlantic City and long suffering residents, who were without heat and hot water for more than two years.

Minor child # 1 was abused by the Small’s own relative, Kayan Fraser. There was never a public rally to support this innocent, abused young child.

Fraser is currently serving time in state prison for his crimes against Minor Child # 1.

The premise of this Tuesday’s rally appears to be that “Enough is Enough,” to the benefit of the Small’s and Days-Chapman.

In fairness, many have had quite enough of the Small’s.
