Jerime Mitchell was stopped by Cedar Rapids police officer Lucas Jones in the early morning hours of November 1, 2016, for driving with a broken rear license plate light on his truck. As things intensify Lucas Jones disengaged his gun and fired several shot into Jerime vehicle striking him in his neck; paralyzing Jerime from his neck down. This isn’t the only altercation on record of Lucas Jones. Lucas Jones has had another shooting along with the reports in October 2015 when Jones shot and killed Jonathan Gossman after Gossman ran from officers during a traffic stop.

All over America there has been shootings /displaying firearm's cases where less lethal weapons can be used. We have seen officers be put on paid leave or simple only get a slap on the wrist and it has to end now ! As a community, we must come together and show that we will no longer stand for this injustice. As a community, we are asking the removal of CRPD Lucas Jones and that everyone is held accountable for their actions.
