Melissa Kowalik started this petition to Marvel and

Over the years, this skull symbol has been worn proudly by our fellow police. This symbol comes from The Punisher, a Marvel Comic Anti-Hero who takes revenge for his family death, who doesn't follow the law, instead, he uses violence to get his own form of justice. While everyone is free to express their favorite show or comic, this symbol should not represent our law enforcement. 

Police should not have this mindset of revenge and unlawfulness. They are meant to protect, enforce the law, and serve the people and the system. By banning this symbol, we spread awareness and signal to them that our justice system is not about revenge and will not be tolerated. The police not meant to murder Americans unless life-threatening situations. Americans are not our enemy and the police are not the enemy of Americans. They are meant to enforce the law and not be their jury and their executioner. We have a right to a trial for our crimes not death under the 6th amendment. 

By signing this petition, you are supporting the removal of this symbol from our police departments. You will also be putting pressure on Disney, the copyright owner of the Punisher, to take action on police who use their logo without authorization. They have the money and the power to enforce a lawsuit. Their silence screams for support of this vigilantism in our law enforcement. I encourage everyone to spread awareness to our local law enforcement and to express your disgust at Disney for letting this go on for years. This will not end police brutality, but cannot end it when there are cops who believe they are the Punisher.
