Conduct a Swift and Independent Investigation into the MURDER of Miriam Carey by Capitol Police and Secret Service

On October 3, 2013 my sister Miriam Carey was murdered by unidentified officers of Capitol Police and Secret Service in Washington, DC.

While being accused of "ramming" a White House gate, the 2010 black Infiniti car Miriam Carey drove did NOT have front end damage nor did the airbags deploy.  The most my sister may have been guilty of was a traffic infraction which is NOT justification for killing her.

Miriam Carey was UNARMED with her 13 month baby in the backseat of her car at the time of the shooting AND KILLING.  Miriam was not only a productive law abiding citizen, she was a mother, a daughter, a sister and a friend who was a 34 year old mother with great potential and full of life whom her daughter Erica will never get to know personally.

I am asking those who can see beyond the propaganda that has been spewed by the media to join me and sign this petition for the U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to begin a swift and independent investigation into the murder of Miriam Carey by those who were sworn to serve and protect.

It is not OK for innocent Americans to be gunned down by our police because they lack training, lack judgement, are fearful or are simply trigger happy.

Please join me and sign this petition for justice for Miriam Carey.

To:
Eric Holder, US Attorney General
President of the United States
New York State Senate
Conduct a Swift and Independent Investigation into the MURDER of Miriam Carey by Capitol Police and Secret Service

Sincerely,

      Petition Organizer

      On Friday October 3, 2014 the Carey family along with supporters will hold a silent protest at the location where Miriam Carey was first shot at, Garfield Memorial Circle located at 1st Street and Maryland Avenue in Washington, DC. It will be one year since the murder of Miriam Carey and there is still no transparency in the case. Now the Attorney General Eric Holder has decided to resign his post. This does not waiver our position. We will continue to pursue #Justice4MiriamCarey.

      Currently the bus leaving from Brooklyn, NY has 9 seats available. Those wanting to join us can meet us in Washington to gather at 1pm.
      For more details email justice4MiriamCarey@gmail.com or go to the eventbrite event page at http://bit.ly/BustoDC

      Thank you for your continued support.

      The very least that the family should know without a doubt is how and why this young woman was gunned down in the District of Columbia, the capital of the U.S.A.
