Target: Tony Davis, Director of Jacksonville Police Department
Goal: Arrest Keenan Mikel Slaughter after he allegedly hit and killed a 16 year old boy and posted a picture of the victim’s dead body on social media.
Sixteen year old Trevius Williams was crossing the street on Sunday night when tragedy struck. Nineteen year old Keenan Mikel Slaughter was driving on the same road and allegedly struck Williams with his car, killing him immediately. Despite the macabre situation, Slaughter’s reaction was all but somber. Slaughter reportedly got out of his car and proceeded to take a picture of William’s dead body and tweet it. He posted the photo along with the caption “i jus killed a man.”
The news devastated William’s family, who was celebrating his brother’s birthday that very day. “He’ll never see his brother again,” said the victim’s mother. Slaughter tweeted earlier that day saying “I drunk so much ** lean I feel like I’m off a NyQuil.” Despite this, police failed to even test the driver for drugs or alcohol.
Despite all of Slaughter’s disturbing behavior, he has not yet been charged with a crime or arrested. The victim’s family is devastated that the man who is responsible for their loved one’s death is walking free. “None of us will (see him) once we lay him to rest. I don’t even want to go back home. My son is never coming back.” Sign this petition and demand this man face charges and be put behind bars.
Dear Officer Davis,
I am writing you today because I am deeply disappointed with the results of the case involving Keenan Mikel Slaughter and Trevius Williams. Slaughter hit and killed Williams with his car Sunday night, and then proceeded to take a picture of Williams dead body and post it on twitter with the caption “i jus killed a man”. This behavior is not only disturbing, it is sociopathic.
Earlier in the day of the accident Slaughter had tweeted about drug use, yet he was not tested for alcohol or drugs on the scene of the crime. Officials reported no drugs or alcohol had been involved, yet how was that proven when he was not even tested?
William’s family is devastated. The learned the news of their loved one’s death while celebrating the victim’s brother’s birthday. “My son is never coming back.” said William’s mother. Despite Slaughter’s horrific actions, no charges have been pressed against him and no arrest has been made. A man who killed a 16 year old boy and boasted of it proudly on social media is walking free. I urge you to arrest Slaughter and bring justice to this poor innocent boy’s death.
[Your Name Here]
