Justice for Shantel Davis started this petition to Kings County D.A. Charles J. Hynes

On June 14th, 2012, Shantel Davis, an unarmed 23 year old black woman, was brutally shot and murdered in an immobilized car by N.Y.P.D. officer Phillip Atkins.

Atkins has six federal civil rights lawsuits filed against him and numerous complaints of misconduct registered with the Civilian Review Board. Atkins is known in this mainly black working-class neighborhood as a crooked drug-pushing maniac who harasses, beats up, threatens, and arrests residents of the neighborhood.

Shantel’s murder shows once again that the role of the police is the same in every black and Latino neighborhood: to intimidate, terrorize and kill with impunity.

Please sign this petition and join us in demanding D.A. Charles Hynes to indict Phillip Atkins and make him stand trial for the murder of Shantel Davis.
