Tell the Governor of Nevada, Brian Sandoval, to Investigate Law Enforcement in Fernley, NV

      Oakland, CA

Law enforcement officials are turning a blind eye to Native American victims of hate crimes in Fernley, NV by jailing the victims and failing to offer them adequate medical care while incarcerated.  The same officials allowed the perpetrators to go after taking only their statements and ignored victims questions or statements of the incident. After this incident other famliies have come forward reporting similiar assaults.

      We need to keep getting the word out there and to let residents of Fernley, NV, both Native and non-Native Americans know that we are supporting their efforts to be heard and are working toward making sure the state officials also know.

      I am signing this as a protest of the way our people are treated and nothing is done about it. How long must the Native American suffer? Those White Racist Thugs need to remember who was in the country first. I visit Nevada a lot but not anymore, I know a lot of people who visit there also but not after they read about what is happening. I do articles for a major newspaper that will find this very interesting and I can promise will publish a story about this.

      I pass through Fernley twice a year and spend around $1,000 each time. I am only one of thousands who attend Burning Man every year who do so. So while I am not a constituent in NV, I am contributing to the local economy. If action is not taken I will stop doing business in Fernley.

      Native Americans should be protected. We have done enough damage to this culture!~
