This petition had 48,437 supporters


On Tuesday November 24, 2015 a young man by the name of Herbert Smith was sentenced to 60yrs in prison for a simple violation of probation due to a drivers license suspension charge, by Judge Matthew Destry of the Broward County Clerk of Courts. This judge has been known for over sentencing people of color I've read several articles and several people have spoken about this judge as far as to how they were unfairly treated. We will not sit around and allow these types of injustices to go on we want justice. Minimum mandatory sentencing guidelines are a violation of our constitutional rights it gives the judge the right to lock  people away and throw away the key, I've seen murderers and rapist get less harsher sentences, This judge is unfair and needs to be removed from the bench because he doesn't have the best interest for people of color. Please sign this petition if you fully understand why it's important to stand up against inequality and injustice in the courts.
