Mass Action started this petition to Governor Charlie Baker

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is not exempt from scrutiny and condemnation for its involvement in the pandemic of racism and police brutality. The shocking murder of George Floyd, the shooting and paralyzing of Jacob Blake, the unprovoked murder of Breonna Taylor, the dehumanization and murder of Daniel Prude and a litany of other cases reveals that despite ongoing protests, an insidious culture continues to pervade the police and government in our society. In the commonwealth of Massachusetts we have several cases that need to be prosecuted or reopened, starting with the killing of Justin Root, Usamah Rahim, Burrell Ramsey-White, Ross Batista, Terrence Coleman, Denis Reynoso, Malcolm Gracia, and Eurie Stamps just to name a few.


The system has given police officers a green light to kill, especially Black people, because of their refusal to indict, convict, or jail the thousands of officers who have killed or maimed civilians. In the last 15 years, Massachusetts has not even indicted a single officer for taking the life of a civilian.


The families of those killed by the police and survivors of police brutality have their lives devastated. They and the rest of the world as witnesses are asked to accept that nothing can be done to hold the police accountable. WE SAY ENOUGH!


We demand Governor Baker immediately assign a special prosecutor to reopen all past cases of police brutality in Massachusetts.
