Target: Perry County, Pennsylvania District Attorney, Andrew Bender
Goal: Hold police constable responsible for allegedly serving an eviction notice and reportedly firing his gun inside the home and killing a little girl.
A police constable reportedly shot and killed a 12-year-old girl in her own home. The police constable was allegedly at the home to serve the victim’s father an eviction notice, and claims the father pointed a gun at him, so he fired his own weapon, which completely went through the father’s arm and killed the innocent little girl instead.
It was reported that the father is recovering in the hospital, but faces numerous assault charges and even terrorist threats, although he was in his own home when approached by the police. It was his innocent daughter who was senselessly murdered, yet the only thing said for the constable so far is that the case will be reviewed by the district attorney.
Why would a police constable go straight for his weapon and fire right into a person’s private home, knowingly endangering other people? His training should’ve kicked in and he should’ve at least attempted to utilize the other methods of disarming a person. This is one of many questions that needs to be answered. The police constable’s seemingly reckless behavior left an innocent little girl dead.
Demand a full, third-party investigation into the case so that appropriate action may be taken against the police constable if there’s any evidence of him reacting recklessly or with unnecessary force. The police constable failed to do the job he signed up for—to serve and protect—and he should be held fully responsible for this poor girl’s death.
Dear Mr. Bender,
A police constable was serving an eviction notice when the man, who was standing in his own home, allegedly pointed a gun at his chest. Instead of reacting in a safe manner and attempting to disarm the man in a non-violent, risky way first, he reportedly fired his weapon. The bullet tore through the man’s arm and killed his 12-year-old daughter who was inside the home.
The constable’s behavior is questionable. He shouldn’t have fired his weapon into a home, knowing he was endangering other lives. This poor innocent girl is dead because of what appears to be reckless behavior. We demand that the investigation into this case be conducted by a third party and that the constable be held fully responsible for this senseless death, if any evidence shows him to be guilty of overreacting.
