The intention of this petition is to make sure Riley Rawlins receives justice.
On January 7th, 2012 Riley was walking to the Sonic off of Audelia & Royal in Dallas, Texas. He was crossing the street "and had the right of way" when he was struck and killed by a 19 year old woman going twice the posted speed limit running a red light. The limit in this area is 35 and she admitted to going 70+ This young woman that hit and killed Riley was not only speeding but has no drivers licence and no car insurance, in fact the vehicle she was driving is not even hers. The Dallas Police Dept. took her statement and then she was free to leave.
Riley did not have that choice, he was not able to walk away from the scene of the accident. He was taken to Baylor Medical Center Dallas where later that evening he passed away. As of today "Jan 17th" this woman has still not been picked up or arrested.
Fox 4 News has covered some of this story, but reporters have told Rileys mom "Monica Rawlins" that we need to get this into the media, we need to be on the phone and emailing the DA, we need to be on the phone with and emailing the chief of police because the lady that hit Riley has a good chance of a plea bargan for "Probation". This is NOT justice!!!
