Corey Muirhead: The Chargers were dropped without preconditions!

Support this issue because it's a classic case of Systemic Racism. We have to affect change in a positive way and we have to force the York Regional Police Department to do the right thing. Constable Dameian did his job well in a very hostile, racially charged situation that could have ended very badly while investigating a farm party. The parties involved were drunk and began hurling racial taunts at him and his partner (who is white). At one point someone in the crowd of people said "I would love to see that guy hanging from a tree." Even though complaints were filed against both officers, Constable Dameian Muirhead is the only one being charged by his own Police Department with insubordination, discreditable conduct and neglect of duty. Please google his name and you will be able to get an overview of just how ridiculous and unjust this is; given the facts that has already been revealed to the public during the two court hearings that has already taken place. You can also check out and join the facebook group "Support Constable Dameian Muirhead."

      Damien has been unfairly dealt with and justice is needed to be served in this case and all charges are to be dropped.

      Because they are waisting tax payers money investigating the constable, who in my opinion was proforming is duty.

      If Dameian Muirhead is charged, I will lose ALL complete faith, trust, and respect in/for the York Region Police force, a force I once thought was one I can trust and believe in. It is too easy to believe that this is racially motivated when we hear about police officers who have faced lighter consequences for having done far worse. A black officer does nothing wrong and faces consequences? This is uncomprehendible
