Bring Justice for the unnecessary death of Riley Rawlins

      Manassas, VA

The intention of this petition is to make sure Riley Rawlins receives justice.

On January 7th, 2012 Riley was walking to the Sonic off of Audelia & Royal in Dallas, Texas. He was crossing the street "and had the right of way" when he was struck and killed by a 19 year old woman going twice the posted speed limit running a red light. The limit in this area is 35 and she admitted to going 70+ This young woman that hit and killed Riley was not only speeding but has no drivers licence and no car insurance, in fact the vehicle she was driving is not even hers. The Dallas Police Dept. took her statement and then she was free to leave.

Riley did not have that choice, he was not able to walk away from the scene of the accident. He was taken to Baylor Medical Center Dallas where later that evening he passed away. As of today "Jan 17th" this woman has still not been picked up or arrested.

Fox 4 News has covered some of this story, but reporters have told Rileys mom "Monica Rawlins" that we need to get this into the media, we need to be on the phone and emailing the DA, we need to be on the phone with and emailing the chief of police because the lady that hit Riley has a good chance of a plea bargan for "Probation". This is NOT justice!!!

      The police seem to be leaning toward taking this to the Grand Jury ---- instead of simply charging the woman who killed Riley. We need all the pressure we can muster with phone calls and emails – telling these people we want her charged. Every voice and email will help.

      Thank you to all who have already sent emails and made phone calls. We are in the home stretch --- and it’s gonna be a fight to keep this from the Grand Jury, who can simply send this woman home with NO charges, or put her up with charges with consequences like probation only…

      Irresponsibility cannot go unpunished to the full degree, especially when a young man's life was cut so short.

      What a wonderful looking young man. This is a travesty that illegal alien got away with.

      Tired of people disobeying the law affecting/killing innocent citizens. No license? No insurance? No business driving, much less speeding, running red lights and killing American Citizens. Since she usurped the privilege to drive, maybe she needs to have the privilege to grace a prison cell.
