On May 16, 2010, Detroit police officer Joseph Weekley shot and killed 7-year-old Aiyana Stanley-Jones during a police raid and on June 18, 2013 his case was declared a mistrial. Aiyana's young life was cut short by an overzealous officer who raided her home while she slept. Because Weekley's case was declared a mistrial in June, there is still an opportunity to bring him to justice. On July 25, 2013 Wayne County Judge Cynthia Hathaway reconvene to determine whether Weekley will face retrial for Aiyana's murder. Please voice your support to retry Joseph Weekley's case so that a jury may reach a verdict. Aiyana Stanley-Jones represents another Black life taken too soon. Justice must be served.
