Justice For Robert Barber

This petition had 2,807 supporters

WSU student athlete Robert Barber has been unjustly racially profiled and targeted and subsequently suspended from the University and from the football team by the WSU Student Conduct Board for allegations for which he has not been charged by the local police.  An independent council has been appointed by the University to review the conduct and process taken by the Student Conduct Board and it is our belief that Barbers suspension should be lifted immediately until this review is complete, as no one should be presumed guilty, regardless of race or participation in sports, before due process is complete.  He has been a mentor in the community and an upstanding citizen for the past five years and is 1 unit shy of graduation.  WSU is known as a tight community and a family.  How can the Student Conduct Board justify treating another human being like this?  Voice your support for swift action by President Schulz to overturn the suspension of Robert Barber and let justice takes its course.  Show your support of Robert Barber continuing and finishing his degree at WSU and completing the season with his teammates by signing this petition.   Our goal is to get 10,000 signatures by the end of the weekend.  Show your Cougar pride and don't sit idol.    Take action today!  #CougNation #JusticeForBarber #CougFam
