Overturn Decision Not to Charge Officers for Killing Alton Sterling

Target: Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Goal: Charge police officers for the shooting of a black man.

News was leaked that the officers who shot and killed Alton Sterling — a shooting that sparked outrage concerning police brutality and institutionalized racism — will not be charged for his death. The decision was leaked to the media even before the mayor or Sterling’s family were informed.

A civil rights investigation was opened shortly after the shooting, in which Sterling, a father of five, was killed outside a grocery shop. Video footage of the scene appears to show officers holding Sterling down as they shot him. Police say he refused to comply with them, and that they saw a gun in his pocket after they used a stun gun to bring him to the ground. Sterling died on the scene after having been reportedly wrestled to the ground and shot by the two white officers.

The choice not to charge the officers comes along with the change in administration and the appointment of Jeff Sessions as Attorney General. The decision is racist and unjust. Sign below to demand that the two officers responsible be charged for the shooting of Alton Sterling.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Sessions,

The two white officers who held down a black man and father of five — Alton Sterling — and shot and killed him must be charged for their actions. Troubled race relations and police brutality have been running rampant and cannot be allowed to stand.

Alton Sterling and his family deserve justice. In addition, the statement made by refusing to charge the men responsible for his death condones racism and violence. I urge you to charge the officers who killed Alton Sterling.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

  1. Stop the racism is AGAINST WHITE PEOPLE, WHO ENDURE RACISM FROM ALL OTHER RACES, DISCRIMINATION ON THEIR OWN COUNTRIES, WITH THE WELFARE PAYING FOR IMMIGRANTS AND REFUGEES (WHICH SHOULD BE FIGHTING FOR THEIR COUNTRIES LIKE EVERYONE IN EUROPE HAS DONE AND USA)AND DENYING THEM HELP. LIKE WELFARE AND OTHER STATE INSTITUTIONS GOING AFTER WHITE ONLY WHITE CITIZENS WHO CREATE THE SYSTEM, TO EXTORT THEM TO GET MONEY TO GIVE TO THE SAME IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES/MIGRANTS WHILE THESE CITIZENS GO INTO MISERY. IT IS ALWAYS THE SAME. WHEN ARE BLACK OFFICERS INVOLVED WHICH HAD HAPPEN WHY IS NOT RACISM? ALSO WHY WHEN IS A BLACK KILLED IS ALWAYS RACISM IS NOT BECAUSE MOST OFTEN THEY ARE IN CRIME LIFE AND WANT TO GET AWAY WITH ALL SORTS OF CRIMES OTHERWISE IS RACISM… WHEN IS A WHITE KILLED WHY DON’T WE COME CLAIMING RACISM? WHEN IT WAS ALL DONE IN AFRICA BY WHITE PEOPLE STILL WE GIVE AND GIVE AND GIVE IN ALL KINDS AND THEY ACCEPT, AND ACCEPT AND STILL COMPLAIN FROM WHITE AND STILL ARE COMING, INVADING OUR COUNTRIES BUT WE AR SO RACISTS AREN’T WE? WHITES GAVE THEM HOUSE, CLOTHES, FOOD, MEDICAL CARE WHICH THEY NEVER HAD IN THEIR OWN COUNTRIES AND THEY STILL COMPLAIN, PLEASE OPEN THE EYES. THEY NEED TO LEARN TO WORK HARD NOT GET ALL WITH ASS SEATED AND SHAKING IT WITH MUSIC. THEY FU… AND FU… AND THAN WE GET THE FU… IN EUROPE AND USA. THEY WANT TO LIVE IN THESE SOCIETIES? VERY WELL SO THEY NEED TO LEARN TO BUILT THEM, TO TOLERATE, TO BE HUMBLE, TO BE STERILIZED AS THEY NEVER LEARN TO USE PILLS, BECAUSE THE REDUCTION IN POPULATION IS A MUST IN AFRICA. THEY HAVE THE KIDS TO SELL, TO SLAVERY OF ALL KINDS. MOST OF THE GUILTY IS AS USUAL ON THE FATHER, SO THAT’S THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM. IS NOT SAVING AFICA CHILDREN BECAUSE AS MORE YOU SAVE MORE WILL APPEAR IN EUROPE AND USA WHEN MANY OF THEM SHOULD DIE, IF WHITE DIDN’T SAVE THEM WITH VACCINES, FOOD, MEDICAL CARE IN AFRICA ALL GIVEN FOR FREE. WE SHOULDN’T INTERFERE WITH NATURE SHE KNOWS BETTER. THESE PEOPLE NEED TO CHANGE THEIR CULTURE AND MIND IN ORDER TO BUILT SOCIETIES LIKE THE ONES THEY SO MUCH WANT TO LIVE IN. STARTING BY HAVING 1 OR 2 KIDS. THIS GUY IS FATHER OF 5 I BET LIVING ON TAX PAYERS MONEY AS USUAL AND NOW PLAYING THE POOR GUY…SAVE ME FROM THIS STUPIDITY. THE WORLD IS PROBABLY MUCH BETTER WITHOUT THIS AND THE 5 KIDS MUST BE ALL THE SAME KIND OF THE FATHER, JUST A BAD SEED.
