Petition to William P. Barr, Antonio Guterres, Michelle Bachelet
Re-open the Department of Justice's investigation into the shooting death of Miriam Carey.
On October 3, 2013 Miriam Iris Carey was shot and killed by unidentified officers of assigned to the United States Capitol Police and Secret Service Uniform Division in Washington, DC. Miriam was UNARMED with her 13 month baby in the backseat of her car at the time of the shooting. The preliminary and final investigations performed by the Metropolitan Police Department indicated Miriam violated no laws. [Secret Service ‘Willful’ Violations of Policies Caused Death of Miriam Carey http://buff.ly/1KsOjLM] Since that fateful day, the United States Department of Justice has refused to bring criminal or civil rights charges against the officers despite having clear evidence, they acted in a 'willful' manner. To this day, unlike other similar police shootings where President Barack Obama, the United States Congress and Department of Justice called for and insisted there be FULL public disclosure of the documents and facts have refused provide FULL public disclosure of the documents and facts in Miriam's case. WorldNet Daily ('Smoking-gun documents prove unarmed mom wrongly killed' http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/smoking-gun-documents-prove-unarmed-mom-wrongly-killed/) and the Washington Post (How Miriam Carey's U-turn at a White House Checkpoint Led to her Death http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/style/2014/11/26/how-miriam-careys-u-turn-at-a-white-house-checkpoint-led-to-her-death/) investigations raises serious questions about the government's official explanation about the shooting. Please join us in petitioning the White House, United States Congress and the United States Department of Justice to re-open the Department of Justice's investigation into the 'avoidable' shooting death of Miriam Iris Carey by United States Capitol Police and Secret Service and for the United States Congress to hold parallel Congressional Hearings about the surrounding circumstances of the shooting. Please join the Carey Family as we seek FULL public disclosure of the documents and the facts surrounding Miriam's 'avoidable' death by signing this petition.

Petition to Minnesota State House
Justice for Dolal Idd
Dolal Idd was shot and killed by police near the same place Geroge Floyd was killed. Idd, 23, was Somali American and lived in the Twin Cities suburb of Eden Prairie. His father told the Sahan Journal that Idd was taking classes at Normandale College. Idd “was a family man, loved by his folks and his friends. Only god knows the pain everyone is feeling today,” said Abdirahman Warsame, who organized a GoFundMe pageto help pay for the family’s funeral costs. According to Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension records, Idd had been convicted of five misdemeanors and two felonies. Records show that he was jailed for possession of marijuana, carrying a firearm without a permit, theft, his involvement in a traffic accident, fleeing a police officer and giving a false name to a police officer. He was just finishing a three-year probation, his father said. In an incident from 2018, police say Idd, then 21, fired a gun in his family’s basement while two younger children were sleeping on the same level, according to Southwest News Media. His family is burying Idd on New Year’s Day, said Jaylani Hussein of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Officers were executing a traffic stop, which took place at the Holiday gas station at 36th Street East and Cedar Avenue in south Minneapolis, as part of a “probable cause” weapons investigation. But he didn’t offer more specifics about it. A police spokesperson earlier said that the victim was suspected of a felony. Officers recovered a weapon at the scene. It’s still unclear if Idd shot at police at all because of only one video of body cam footage was released. POLICE SHOULDNT USE DEADLY FORCE!

31 BULLETS #Justice for Juston Root: NEED AN Independent Investigation #PoliceBrutality
Our son and brother, Juston Root was killed by 6 officers who shot 31 bullets as he lay on the ground, in a semi-comatose condition with nothing in his hands! He posed no threat to those around him. No one has been held accountable for his death. Please help us by signing this petition. Our family is still grieving, but that won’t stop us from fighting for justice for Juston – and to make sure no other family has to face this kind of tragedy. Will you help us? Add your name to tell lawmakers that there must be an independent investigation into his killing. On Feb. 7th, 2020, Juston was in a mental health crisis, on his way to his counselor at Mass Mental Health Center in Boston. Juston had an oversized clear plastic paintball gun in his waist. The Boston Police were called with a report of a person with a gun. When officers arrived, one of them used deadly force immediately, injuring Juston. Juston limped to his car, one of his legs was bleeding badly, he got in his car and drove away slowly. The Boston Police ensued a car chase, and minutes later Juston's car crashed, he staggered out, and dropped to the ground, covered in blood. A former EMT passerby ran to him to give him aid, because he was on the ground in a semi-conscious condition. Moments later, the Police arrived, yelling at the former EMT to get away from Juston. One officer kicked Juston, and then all six officers shot 31 bullets from close range, killing Juston instantly. He posed no conceivable threat to the officers or the public and had no weapon in his hands. The Norfolk DA exonerated these officers after just one month. Critical evidence and important witness statements were left out of the final report, including the former EMT who was there shortly before Juston was killed. The police have not released any footage of the actual shooting. The report says only one officer had a body camera on and filming, but their arm obstructed the lens when officers fired. The report is wholly inadequate and far from transparent. We, the Root family and the public, demand a timely, thorough, transparent independent investigation into Juston's killing by an impartial investigator with no ties to the police! We call upon Governor Charlie Baker and Attorney General Maura Healey to appoint an independent investigator immediately. Thank you for your support!

Petition to Mike Coffman, Phil Weiser
Justice for Elijah McClain
August 24th, 2019, 23-year-old Elijah McClain was walking home after buying some tea at a local convenience store. According to Elijah's family, Elijah, who was anemic, preferred to wear a ski mask to keep his face warm while he was walking. The Aurora Police Department received a call of a "suspicious man". This call resulted in Elijah's death. After the McClain family requested the bodycam footage from the officers on scene it was reported that in the footage, "He is laying on the ground vomiting, he is begging, he is saying, 'I can't breathe.' One of the officers says, 'Don't move again. If you move again, I'm calling in a dog to bite you,'" -Mari Newman (the McClain's lawyer) When the paramedics arrived they administered a dose of Ketamine to the already unconscious Elijah to "sedate" him. He was pronounced dead August 27th, 2019, at only 23 years old of a heart attack. Denver 7 News stated, "...they couldn’t determine whether McClain's death was an accident, was due to natural causes, or is a homicide related to the police department's use of a carotid hold". The officers on the scene were placed on temporary leave, however, they are back in the field with no charges. Sign this petition to bring justice for Elijah. Demand that these officers are held accountable.
Petition to Killeen Texas Police Department, Bryan Washko,
JUSTICE IN KILLEEN- FIRE Reynaldo Contreras!
On the 13th of January, 2021 in Killeen, Texas, an UNARMED black man was shot and killed in front of his home. The Killeen Police Department sent out Officer Reynaldo Contreras for a WELLNESS check that he was clearly not properly trained for. Officer Contreras shot and killed a 52 year old man, who had his arms raised in the air, in his own yard. Just feet away from his own front door. How MANY POC will die before we care? How MANY will be unable to rely on and AFRAID of the police? This has gone on TOO LONG with NO CHANGE. WE DEMAND THAT OFFICER CONTRERAS BE FIRED FROM KDP AND CRIMINAL CHARGES FILED AGAINST HIM FOR MURDER. WE ALSO DEMAND THAT POLICE TRAINING BE EXTENDED FROM JUST SIX SHORT WEEKS, TO FOUR YEARS. THE SAME AMOUNT OF TIME THAT LAWYERS REQUIRE TO PROFICIENTLY LEARN AND APPLY THE LAWS OF THE U S.
