Adam Freedman started this petition to Congress and

I made this petition in an effort to show the African-American community that the world sees their current struggles and recognizes the inequality in their every day lives.  Many incidents have occurred in recent years showcasing the injustice which some police officers treat black people with, which far too often results in unjust murder. It is time we take a stand and say enough is enough.

The reality is, many officers who have murdered innocent unarmed African-Americans have had previous incidents where they seriously injured civilians and have been reinstated back to the force as if nothing happened. From this day, I am calling on the government to mandate every state creates a third-party bureau to review any police officer incident related to excessive force and determine whether that officer will be permanently stripped of their badge. These incidents can no longer be reviewed by the officers own police department, since it is clear they would not be subject to a non-bias review by their own coworkers and friends.

I would lastly like to say that I recognize the majority of police officers are great people. I see mandating a third party bureau to review these incidents as a way to restore transparency, integrity, and honesty to all police forces while weeding out cops who are not fit to possess that sort of power. I understand this will not solve all injustices in this country, but brick by brick if we all work together we will begin to see progress. Thank you for all your support, let's do something great!
