Hello, my name is Melissa Diotaiuto and I'm a Senior in high school. I've always been passionate about human rights, politics, criminal justice, supporting the President, holding abusive, racist police officers accountable, abiding the Constitution, and being an advocate for marginalized communities. 

I did not know what qualified immunity was until yesterday and when I did research about it, I was appalled and influenced with a heavy urge to write this petition. Qualified immunity protects police officers from getting fired for killing someone on the job. If we ban qualified immunity, this is crucial for criminal justice and beneficial to the black, Hispanic, Autistic, and indigenous population who are most at risk of dying in the hands of vile and unlawful police officers. 

By abolishing qualified immunity in Connecticut and hopefully on a national level, police officers will be fired and arrested for killing unarmed, innocent people of color or anyone. They will be held accountable for their unlawful actions and this is a step in the right direction from preventing another tragic case of police brutality that is devastating and horrific to the black community. 

If you support the Black Lives Matter movement and anti-racism, please share and sign this petition. 

Thank you. 

Sincerely, Melissa Diotaiuto
