We are asking for Honorable Judge Lawrence Mirman to be fired.

On September 29th, 2016, Marcus Strong was sentenced to 25 years in prison by Honorable Judge Lawrence Mirman of Martin County Clerk of Courts, for burglary of a dwelling while the residents were away. During the commission of his crime, there were no weapons, no confrontations, and no violence.  

Marcus was 19 years of age at that the time of his arrest, 25 years is not an appropriate sentence especially been Marcus first time. I strongly believe that Honorable Judge Lawrence Mirman gave this sentence because Marcus is a black kid. This can not be allowed. 

Murders, rapist, and drug dealers get less harsh sentences. We should not sit idly by while the life of another black kid is just carelessly thrown away. 

Please sign this petition, if you fully understand why it is important to stand up against overly harsh sentencing in our court system. Together we will ask Governor Rick Scott to fire Honorable Judge Lawrence Mirman.
