Prosecute Dante Servin For the unjustified murder of Rekia Boyd

    2. Petition by

      Cedar Rapids, IA

Another innocent life has been taken unjustifiably! On March 21st off-duty police officer Dante Servin shot and killed innocent 22 yr. old Rekia Boyd with a claim that he was shooting at an individual whom he claimed pulled a weapon in a crowd of 60-70 people in a park. He approached and harrassed a crowd of people telling them to shut up and when he didnt get the response he wanted opened fire, shooting at least 5 rounds wounding the man that he said had a gun which turned out to be a cell phone that he was on and hitting 22 yr. old Rekia Boyd in the head and killing her. THIS HAS TO STOP NOW!!! How many MORE lives have to be taken and justified with proofless claims of justification before we make the offenders (No matter what their status in the legal system is) face the same fate that anyone else would surely face if the roles were reversed??? WHAT DID REKIA DO?

    2. Chicago Police Department finally admits Rekia was innocent!

      Rekia's campaign for justice is picking up steam! We have successfully put pressure on the Chicago police department through reaching out to any and every media outlet, social network. . .etc. On March 28th the Chicago police department finally admitted that Rekia was in fact an innocent bystander. This was the first time since her untimely death that our family has heard any variation of the 'This shooting was Justified' statement that superintendent Mc Carthy originally released. Even now, neither the Chicago police department or the outside agency that is investigating her death have reached out to Rekia's family and provided any explanation or apology for Rekia being murdered unjustifiably. Their admittance of her unjust murder only came through a phone call that a local news reporter made on behalf of our family. We have yet to even receive a formal statement with an explanation of the events that occured that tragic morning. We will not waiver until JUSTICE is WON!

      It's important to me because she was my baby sister. We need justice to be served!

      I am very angry, that incidents like this keep happening and nothing is being done about it.., we have to stop following their rules in seeking justice, and TAKE ACTION against the injustice that they continue to exercise against our young CHILDREN. EYE FOR AN EYE.., LIFE FOR A LIFE, I'd rather die for something, than to be killed for NOTHING. This is not hate talking, THIS IS THE REACTION TO THE HATE THEY GAVE US!
