Justice for Mike Brown
Just days ago, a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, racially profiled and fatally shot unarmed, 18-year-old, Michael Brown as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend.1 Eye witnesses report that the police officer, who has yet to be identified, fired several shots at Michael as the African-American youth stood in the street with his hands in the air. His family and local community members are calling his death an execution.
Racially motivated police violence has no place in law enforcement. That’s why we’re joining our allies at ColorOfChange.org in calling for a rigorous investigation, prosecution, and dismissal of all officers involved in this tragic police killing.
Tell the U.S. Department of Justice and Missouri authorities to investigate the Michael Brown murder and ensure that all police officers involved in shooting the unarmed youth are prosecuted to the full extent of the law and permanently removed from duty.
