Justice For George Floyd
Petition to Mayor Jacob Frey, DA Mike Freeman
Justice for George Floyd
George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer. George was handcuffed and restrained and being completely cooperative when this all went down. The officer put his knee on George’s neck choking him for minutes on minutes while George screamed that he could not breathe. Bystanders beg for the police officer to take his knee off George’s neck, but the officer didn’t listen and continued to choke him. Not that it would matter at all, but George was not even wanted for a violent crime. A grocery store that he was signing a bad check. We are trying to reach the attention of Mayor Jacob Frey and DA Mike Freeman to beg to have the officers involved in this disgusting situation fired and for charges to be filed immediately. Please help us get justice for George and his family!

Murder charges for Minneapolis police officers(4) that caused the death of George Floyd
George Floyd was murdered on (Monday) March 25, 2020. Despite his (Floyd) cries for help, officer Derek Chauvin, continued to press down on the back of his neck with his knee, while his fellow officers watched. Bystanders also made it clear that Floyd was asking for help and later became unresponsive. This blatant disregard for human life should not be taken lightly. We call for the arrest and prosecution of not only officer Derek Chauvin but the three other officers who sat around doing nothing while this atrocity took place.
Petition to Keith Ellison, DA Mike Freeman, Tim Walz
Justice for George Floyd
**UPDATE: on May 29, Derek Chauvin was arrested and charged with second degree murder, third degree murder and manslaughter. The other three officers were charged with aiding and abetting second degree murder, aiding and abetting third degree murder and aiding and abetting manslaughter. But the fight for justice continues, as does the need to keep a spotlight on Minneapolis. Please help me make sure there is a fair judicial process that results in justice and in the conviction of George Floyd's murderers. George Floyd was murdered by a Minneapolis police officer. George was handcuffed and restrained and being completely cooperative when this all went down. The officer put his knee on George’s neck choking him for minutes on minutes while George screamed that he could not breathe.

Petition to Minnesota Police Department, Tim Walz, Keith Ellison
DEMAND JUSTICE FOR GEORGE FLOYD
George Floyd was brutally murdered whilst begging for his life by ex-officer and murderer Derek Chauvin on camera on May 25, 2020. The video became viral on Facebook and reminded countless of us that racism is unfortunately still alive and well. Even though Floyd was handcuffed and 100% compliant with these 4 officers, Derek Chauvin put his knee on Floyd’s carotid artery for more than 8 minutes until he could no longer take a breath, murdering him. Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng all WATCHED, STOOD IDLY BY, and ALSO KNEELED ON HIS BACK SIMULTANEOUSLY. Throughout this heinous act, Floyd stayed complicit on the ground, simply begging for his mother and told the officers he could not breathe MORE than 14 times. So, now we must show those abusers of power that we CARE and DEMAND JUSTICE. Make George’s name heard. For him and his family, SHARE and SIGN this petition to YOUR friends and family to spread awareness of the ongoing police brutality and killings that MUST be brought to JUSTICE! UPDATE: Derek Chauvin (the one who directly murdered Floyd), Tou Thao, Thomas Lane, and J. Alexander Kueng have all been ARRESTED. Chauvin has been INDICTED FOR SECOND DEGREE MURDER but their cases have just begun. I will not petiton for a higher charge because Chauvin could be found not guilty for premeditation and walk out scot-free. Instead, I ask you guys to keep supporting and showing your power in numbers by signing this petition and raising awareness. We need Minnesota State officers of power to see how MUCH we want justice for George Floyd. THANK YOU!

Petition to Mike DeWine, U.S. Governors, Police Union Leaders
Dishonorable Discharge for Police
Although our nation has been more cognizant of social injustices recently, it is important that we ensure that this leads to real change in our communities. For this reason, I would like to call for a dishonorable discharge clause to be added to police guidelines in both our government and police unions, in order to avoid these scenes from repeating themselves. It has become more apparent that it is extremely difficult to hold police accountable. As we have seen, it took a global movement to charge the murderers of George Floyd, a case which was well documented and clear cut. But we should not all have to come together across the world to demand justice one case at a time. Instead, we need to ensure that police departments, and police unions do not protect the "bad cops". I propose a dishonorable discharge clause be added, following the format of the military, such that any cop that is fired cannot be rehired either in the same department or in any other police department. Having police officers fired is very difficult, and even when they are fired, officers are often rehired thanks in large part to police unions which protect them from facing actual consequences. There have even recently been explicit offers to rehire fired police officers in Florida. And although this proposal is far from eliminating all "bad policing", but it is a reasonable first step. We cannot continue to allow this behavior to go on without any consequences. Please, help us bring about permanent change and police accountability to our communities, and share this message as many times as you can. Because this matters. We should not be afraid to stand for something; rather, we should be afraid to stand for nothing at all.
Petition to Medaria Arradondo, Bob Kroll
Lt. Bob Kroll, resign Immediately!
Lt. Bob Kroll, in a letter to police union members said “ George Floyd had a violent criminal history”. That, Lt Kroll is wrong! Mr. Floyd’s past had nothing to do with his fatal arrest. But, Kroll seems to think that his officers are squeaky clean (they aren’t). Bob Kroll ignores that facts! Which makes him unfit for office! Lt. Kroll, resign immediately!
Petition to Mayor Jacob Frey, County attorney Michael Freeman
#JusticeforFloyd: Demand the officers who killed George Floyd are charged with murder
We are outraged and disturbed by the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police Department officers. For seven minutes, George Floyd and bystanders cried out and pleaded for his life as your officers choked him to death in broad daylight. This is an act of police violence committed on an innocent, unarmed Black man. No one deserves what happened to George. We are calling on the Mayor to 1) block their pensions and 2) ban them from becoming police officers ever again. And County Attorney Freeman must immediately charge all four officers with murder. We’re counting on you to secure justice for his family.
