Gilbert Police: Please help stop the anti-gay vandalism and attacks on our family

This petition had 119 supporters

Our family needs your help.

For the past several weeks, our family has experienced escalating attacks that we believe are nothing short of hate crimes. Quite frankly, we're terrified.

Unfortunately, we're confident that we're being targeted because we're Hispanic and gay.

It started with graffiti on our cars and the street outside our home. Next, bushes were set on fire -- one right next to our house. Then came the banging on the doors and on my daughter's window. Our 9-year-old girl is disabled and can barely walk. Imagine her horror when she heard her taunters outside.

But nothing could have prepared us for what happened next. The perpetrators actually broke into our house and scrawled profanity in the kitchen and in the children's rooms.

We've made literally dozens of calls to the Gilbert Police Department, but nothing has changed. The police keep saying they're taking this matter seriously, but it took multiple complaints to the department's internal affairs to actually get a detective assigned to the case.

And the harassment hasn't stopped.

We really need your help to make sure our local police are taking the matter seriously. By signing this petition, you can help us get the attention of local police, the mayor, and the Arizona's attorney general.

Thank you for standing up for my family.
