Demand that Attorney General Martha Coakley appoints a Special Prosecutor to present the homicide of Joshua Messier to a Grand Jury for Indictment!

The State (DA's Office) is neither Judge nor Jury. Why are they acting as both in this case? This is injustice.   A badge is not a license to murder with impunity.

 

These men killed someone they were supposed to protect and care for, on camera, on record, it was ruled a homicide! If this happened anywhere else in society, school, work, the city streets, these men would be prosecuted criminally, either for manslaughter or murder. Since it happened inside a prison, to a mentally ill person, it has gone unprosecuted.

 

The use of excessive force and violence resulted in a wrongful death. Yet the very people who violently killed 23 year old, Joshua Messier have never been punished. Why not? If any of us violently murder someone on camera, you can bet we would be indicted by a Grand Jury in a heartbeat.


The State should NEVER sanction murder, that is up for the Courts and the people who sit on juries to decide, not the DA! Demand that Attorney General Martha Coakley appoints a Special Prosecutor to bring this tragic homicide case before a Grand Jury!
