Target: Robert E. Bamburg, City Attorney for Jacksonville, Arkansas.
Goal: Demand the maximum penalty for the people who spray painted racist hate speech on a black man’s car.
A black man’s car was vandalized with racist hate speech and symbols. The people responsible are still at large. Demand justice for this innocent man.
“I just don’t understand it. I don’t do anything to hurt anybody. I don’t go out looking for trouble,” Said Reshod Johnson, the owner of the car. Johnson states that he had just left work when he saw two white men vandalizing his 2006 Nissan. Racist remarks and symbols, including “KKK,” were painted both inside and outside of the car. His clothes and valuables were stolen.
Johnson filed a police report, but no suspects have been identified yet. Sign below to demand the maximum penalty in this case.
Dear City Attorney Bamburg,
A black man’s car was vandalized in a possible hate crime. Racist symbols and words were painted on both the inside and the outside of the car. We demand justice for this innocent man.
“We’re supposed to have advanced past this, and to serve the country and to serve everyone and to fight for rights and freedom for everyone, and for this to happen, it’s like a slap in the face and makes you wonder for what,” Johnson stated. He is working on fixing the car but is forced to drive it around in the meantime. Until then, Johnson refuses to allow his 3-year-old son into the car.
This hateful act cannot go unpunished. We demand that you seek the maximum penalty in this case.
