Why this petition matters

On Sunday July 10, LMPD was working as security at a family event known as the dirt bowl at Shawnee Park.  While there, they decided to carry out an arrest warrant on a young man who was in attendance. Instead of waiting to carry it out in a safer environment they put dozens of families and children at risk when they shot dozens of live shots at the man after they hunted him and he ran away. The police do not take out warrants at any other family fun events, why did they take it out at this predominantly black event in the west end? This event is supposed to be a positive community event for folks of all ages- to bring people together but once again LMPD has taken it upon themselves to re-traumatize a community who has already been traumatized by LMPD time and time again. We are asking that LMPD be held accountable and that reform takes place.
