Petition Closed

The incidences (and even one is too many) of police misconduct including battery, and murder against mostly African-American and Latino men is a constant in communities across America whereas police officers and police departments are rarely charged, and convicted for their deadly acts. The supporters of this petition content that if the practice of police misconduct is not immediately and seriously recognized, and remedied, that an internal disregard for participating in local, state, and national elections will not be considered by them as a viable avenue to address their outrage. Thus, the petitioners strongly urge that the issue of police misconduct be center-stage at an upcoming presidential debate during this current presidential election 2012.

Discuss police misconduct at the presidential debates.

The incidences (and even one is too many) of police misconduct including battery, and murder against mostly African-American and Latino men and women is a constant in communities across America whereas police officers and police departments are rarely charged, and convicted for their deadly acts. The supporters of this petition content that if the practice of police misconduct is not immediately and seriously recognized, and remedied, that an internal disregard for participating in local, state, and national elections will not be considered by them as a viable avenue to address their outrage. Thus, the petitioners strongly urge that the issue of police misconduct be center-stage at an upcoming presidential debate during this current presidential election year 2012.
