Target: Rahm Emanuel, Chicago Mayor
Goal: Reprimand racism in the Chicago Police Department.
A task force investigation reportedly found Chicago police to be racist and ineffective. Their investigation found that 74% of people killed or injured by Chicago police in the past eight years were African American, proving that African Americans are disproportionately targeted by cops.
The police department’s job is to protect and serve, but it seems Chicago police have completely forgotten this and think they’re above the law because they’ve been allowed to behave in such a vile manner for so long. It’s time the police start doing their jobs and stop abusing their power, using their badges as excuses. Until pressure is put on them to change and real punishments issued to those who are guilty, these officers will continue with racism and abuse. Please sign this petition to demand that the Chicago police be reprimanded and held fully responsible for all racist behavior.
Dear Mr. Emanuel,
An investigation of the Chicago Police Department reportedly found them ineffective and racist. The report states that in the past eight years, 74% of people killed or injured by Chicago police were African American. These statistics are disgusting and there’s no excuse for such rampant racism.
The job of a police officer is to serve and protect, not maim, kill, and destroy, which is exactly what a lot of Chicago police have been accused of. These officers have failed miserably at their jobs and are only hurting the lives of others. It’s time to put an end to this racist abuse of power. We urge you to utilize all resources necessary to end this racist abuse of power and see to it that guilty officers are reprimanded and punished.
[Your Name Here]
