Petition the DOJ for justice in Ferguson MO

You've likely heard the story of an 18-year old black man being executed by police in the streets. And the mass demonstrations that followed thereafter, with police gassing protestors. We must nip this fascist police State in the bud, so please consider signing this petition, text following:

Dear US Attorney General Eric Holder, MO Attorney General Chris Koster, and Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson,

I write demanding full accountability for the police killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown. On August 9th, 2014 a Ferguson police officer racially profiled and fatally shot Michael as the teen stood in the street with his hands in the air. Police subsequently failed to properly notify the family of Michael's death and callously left the young man lying deceased in the street for hours.

This type of brutal and racially-motivated police violence has no place in law enforcement. Every day, Black residents of Ferguson and Missouri face possible abuse and death at the hands of an officer due to discriminatory policing tactics based on dehumanizing racial stereotypes. In order to secure the necessary justice for Michael's family and prevent this type of indefensible violence in the future, you must take immediate action.

Please exercise your authority to complete a rigorous investigation of the Ferguson Police Department's racially discriminatory policing, prosecute said officers to the fullest extent of the law, and begin the firing process for all involved officers
