Petition to Tim Walz, Keith Ellison, Judge Peter Cahill

Demand a free and fair trial.

GEORGE FLOYD should still be alive today. Demand Justice. Derek Chauvin will stand trial for the murder of George Floyd in March. The 3 other officers on the scene that day will stand trial in August. Chauvin has been charged with second-degree murder and manslaughter and faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted.  We demand a free and fair trial. We demand the Minneapolis Police Officers involved in the murder of George Floyd be held responsible.  We are calling on Governor Tim Walz, Keith Ellison, of Minnesota Attorney General and Judge Peter Cahill to ensure a fair trial. George Floyd was a star athlete in high school, and among the first of his siblings to attend college. He became a fixture in the early days of Houston’s hip-hop scene, performing as a rapper known as “Big Floyd.” Like all of us, he had some ups and downs in his life, but in adulthood, Mr. Floyd became committed to his Christian faith, becoming an active church volunteer and a mentor to troubled youth in his community.

JUSTICE FOR CHRISTIAN HALL

Chinese-American Christian Hall was brutally murdered on December 30th, 2020. He was experiencing a mental health crisis yet the police were not able to respond appropriately.  Shortly after his death, the Pennsylvania state police released a report stating that Christian possessed a firearm and that he was uncooperative with the police. They stated in the report that Christian picked up the firearm and attempted to use it against the police, and so they fired at him. In a newly released video from a nearby pedestrian, it showed that Christian had his hands raised in the air and that he never attempted to reach for the firearm. Even after the video, the police officers responsible for his death were able to continue with their jobs.  This type of treatment to POC is disgusting and we are tired of it. We must all take a stand together, united, to reconstruct this corrupt system. Without the help of everyone, the system will forever stay this way so please do your part and spread this message.    Here’s what you can do to help: * Create and sign petitions about and related to this issue * Educate family, friends, and others about this issue * Speak up on this issue! * Peacefully protest about this issue

DEMANDING JUSTICE FOR CHRISTIAN HALL

Tragically, Christian Hall is not the only victim of police brutality. It is unfortunate that the system continues to fail those who are seeking help and support but end up becoming the victims of this form of modern-day lynching. Please sign this petition to demand justice for Christian Hall and his family.  Christian Hall was a 19 year old Chinese-American who was brutally shot by police officers while experiencing a mental health emergency on December 30th, 2020.  Following Christian's death, authorities released a report claiming Christian was in possession of a firearm. When the police officers ordered him to drop the weapon, he complied but allegedly became uncooperative. It was stated that Christian reached for the firearm on the ground and pointed it in the direction of the officers causing them to fire at him. However, newly surfaced videos show that Christian had his hands raised at the moment authorities shot him. Despite Christian's death and the body camera footage, the officers were still allowed to return back to work. "He was looking for help, but instead of getting help, he was killed by those who were supposed to help him." (Quoted by Christian Hall's mother)  Christian's family and attorneys are demanding justice for Christian by... Asking the Pennsylvania general attorney's office to hold a completely independent investigation on the case. PROSECUTING the officers who murdered Christian Hall.
