Carmen Crawford started this petition to Senators Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray

We have ALL in recent years seen an uptick in calls made to 911 from white people regarding POC.  We all know the names Jennifer Schulte, Steve Chronister, and many others.  We give them cute names like BBQ Becky or Golfcart Gail. However, it is not funny.  The videos go viral, people make memes to put on Facebook, but people are dying.  

This petition is asking to increase the punishments nationwide at the federal level that would curtail this practice.  


These calls have consequences, sometimes LIFE THREATENING !!!!!  It takes time away from 911 dispatchers taking calls for actual violent crimes being committed.  The young woman who was just raped at a party, the wife who calls because she is being beaten to death by her husband, the store owner who was shot in a burglary, the child who has been kidnapped.  These people are in need of help RIGHT NOW.  The POC that are having these calls made on them are afraid, they are demeaned, and sometimes ( too often) these calls can start a chain reaction that ends up with them dead.  THIS HAS TO STOP!!!!

This practice is a fundamental backbone to the racism we have in this country.  This is not a freedom of speech issue, it is a public safety issue.
