From Petition Creator James Jennings: ALL. Great news. The Special Grand Jury has indicted officer Harmon-Wright for the murder of Mrs Cook, along with numerous other charges. This may make our petition moot, but we are up to 988 signatures. Unless there's disagreement, I still intend to deliver the petition next week, as a sign of your faithfulness to stand up for Mrs. Cook. Thanks to all. We need to continue to encourage a fair trial and should pray for all involved that this will lead to justice and healing in our community. James http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Culpeper-Police-Officer-Charged-in-February-Fatal-Shooting-155502385.html "A grand jury charged Town of Culpeper Police Officer Daniel Harmon-Wright, 32, of Gainesville, Tuesday evening with murder, malicious shooting into an occupied vehicle, malicious shooting into an occupied vehicle resulting in a death and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony.'

54 year old, unarmed retired Sunday School teacher, Patricia Cook, was shot to death while sitting in her vehicle, in broad daylight, by a Culpeper Town Police Officer. 10 weeks after the shooting, the police officer is still unnamed. No charges have been filed, and he remains on the payroll. At the most recent town council meeting, citizens were not allowed to discuss the shooting, and no information has been made available by the Virginia State Police regarding the status of the investigation. After 10 weeks, it seems reasonable that the officer either be cleared, by releasing details explaining why deadly force was required, or charged in the death of this unarmed woman.

After signing this petition, please also go to our Facebook page, Justice for Patricia Cook, and like the page. This will be the place where we will build community and share ideas as well as any updates or events. Thanks.

      I changed the URL, because it previously sounded like we were asking the Senate to bring criminal charge.

      Please pass this along to your friends and neighbors. If a 54 year old, unarmed woman, can be shot by a town police officer and 10 weeks later there is still no action, what does that say about our system of justice? Ultimately, we get the government that we allow. Please don't be silent on this issue. Thanks so much for your involvement.

      If the officer has not been cleared, he needs to be held accountable..

      Excessive force when other alternatives could have been used.
