I’m sure you’ve heard about Michael Brown, the unarmed black teen who was gunned down by a police officer last Saturday afternoon, on August 9 in Ferguson, MO. There has been outrage and unrest in Ferguson ever since he was killed. The Ferguson police department has given us little to no information on the investigation. What the people of Ferguson, and really the people of the world, as we’ve seen international protests, are looking for is justice. Let’s face it, citizens as a whole need protection from police brutality.
There is an online petition asking President Obama to enact new federal laws that will help protect citizens from police brutality. I am one of more than 200,000 people who have already signed this petition. Let’s stand together and present a united front and stand up for our rights as citizens.
The link to the petition is below. If you haven’t already signed it, please read the petition, consider and sign it. If you have seen this petition and have already signed it, please write a personal message to your friends and family, urging them to do the same. Of course this won’t be the end of the fight, but it’s a big step in the right direction.
Thanks for reading.
