Graham 18, was shot and killed by police officer Richard Haste. Haste, chased the unarmed teenager into the home of his grandmother without a warrant and killed him in the bathroom. Haste, later claimed that he heard the teen had a gun over his police radio. Graham, who would've turned 21 this month still hasn't received the justice that he deserves. New York City Councilman memeber Jumaane Willams told the Huffington Post in an email, "It's been two years now, and we've goten no justice for Ramarley Graham and his family. If Ramarley and his family can't get justice in a case like this -- where he was unarmed and shot and killed in his own family's home -- what hope is there for other black and Latino men in this city and across the nation?" I decided to start this petition because just like Jumaane Williams I think it is important to let everyone know that the lives of black and brown boys matters. This is important and the senseless killing of unarmed teens must be stopped because their lives matter too. So, sign this petition to get the word out and let U.S Attorney General Eric Holder know that something has to be done to bring justice to Graham and his family and friends.
