Petition Closed

Dr. Issa has the right to peacefully assemble and petition for a redress of grievances. The police had no right to arrest him and any charges brought against him are therefore unethical and unnecessary. This is a fight to enforce and protect his and our freedom of speech!

Letter to
Delaware State Attorney General Beau Biden
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Delaware State Attorney General Beau Biden.

----------------
On March 1, 2012, Professor Jahi Issa attended a peaceful rally held by students of Delaware State University to protest a racist Ku Klux Klan flier and the recent firing of Black faculty at the University. Although he committed no crime, Dr. Issa was forcibly brought to the ground, assaulted by taser, and arrested by police. Delaware State Attorney Beau Biden’s offices filed Class A misdemeanors against the former professor and Dr. Issa is now set to go to trial on October 22, 2012.

We call on State Attorney Beau Biden to drop all charges against Professor Jahi Issa. Dr. Issa has the right to peacefully assemble and petition for a redress of grievances. The police had no right to assault or arrest him and any charges brought against him are therefore unethical and represent a violation of his rights. This is a fight to enforce and protect his and our freedom of speech!
