I made this petition to make sure that Huntsville Police Chief Mark McMurray and Mayor Battle resign. This issue affects Huntsville and we need change.

Office Darby was convicted of murder today, May 7th, for the killing of a suicidal man in 2018. 
Darby was the third, and lower ranking officer to arrive to a call of a suicidal man who had a gun to his head. Parker, the suicidal man, had been speaking to two senior officers who testified the situation was under control when Darby arrived. Immediatelyupon arrival Darby loaded his shotgun and sprinted to the house. He demanded Parker drop the gun, which he was pointing at his own head. Within 11 seconds Darby shot Parker in the face with his Huntsville Police Department issued shot gun.

Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle, encouraged the city to financially back Darby during his trial. Now that he has been found guilty he should be forced to repay the city. Our tax dollars shouldn’t be going to legal defense for murderers.

The mayor and Huntsville Police Chief Mark McMurray have both made statements defending Darby. This petition aims to force McMurray and Battle to publicly denounce Darby’s actions, or resign their positions. As people in positions authority their failure to hold Darby accountable will make others like Darby feel empowered to do the same.
