More on this petition:
On April 18th, 2020, 33 year old father of three, Steven Taylor was murdered in a Walmart store by two white police officers. Steven had been suffering from schizophrenia and depression. Steven was having a mental health crisis while in the Walmart and the police were called. Instead of helping him he was shot with a taser and then shot dead with a gun. Mind you there are several customers around witnessing this. In broad daylight, in a busy store this man was killed in cold blood. In a moment when he needed help the most, he had his life taken from him. The officers have been placed on administrative leave. They need to be fired and charged. Justice needs to be served! The city of San Leandro has asked the California state District Attorney to investigate the shooting. We are demanding that the officers be fired and charged with murder. Stephen was a beloved figure in his community and someone who deserved to be helped during his crisis. It is also important to note that his mother has not received a phone call with an apology from the SLPD. We need to hold these murders accountable! Please share his story and lets get justice for Steven Taylor! I will be linking a Gofundme that someone created for Steven. I urge you to donate if you can. You can reach out to the SLPD by calling Police Chief Jeff Tudor at (510) 577-3211 and emailing him at email@example.com. You can also contact Mayor Pauline Cutter at (510) 577-3355 firstname.lastname@example.org.
