Justice for Unarmed Black Man Shot Dead in Parking Lot

Target: Xavier Becerra, Attorney General of California

Goal: Prosecute officer who reportedly killed 26-year-old Diante Yarber in his car at Walmart.

Diante “Butchie” Yarber was his name, and he was just sitting in his car with his friends at a Barstow, CA Walmart when someone decided they looked ‘suspicious’ and should call the police. The police arrived shortly after, and when Yarber attempted to drive away, the police reportedly unloaded 30 bullets into the car of the unarmed driver, killing the father of three. One officer involved in the shooting had previously admitted to committing a hate crime against a black couple in 2010 and was arrested, charged, and fired. The officer in question was reinstated a few years later.

There are cases we see where the evidence of racism is so clearly defined that it cannot be ignored. The officers in question reportedly shot 30+ rounds into the vehicle at several black citizens who were unarmed and innocent of any crime. These actions will not continue to be condoned, and change needs to happen on a foundational level. The first step to undoing this injustice is to fire any officer who displays prejudicial behaviors. Sign the petition below to call for the firing of the officers involved.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Attorney General Becerra,

We demand you fire the officers who reportedly killed Diante “Butchie” Yarber and injured three other innocent people. We cannot continue to allow these things to happen and do nothing in response. The officers in question need to be fired and arrested.

We thrive on a systematic level when we employ people in power who care about what is right for the community. No longer can we allow people who refuse to care about their own neighbors to carry a badge and a gun. We demand you take action immediately.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Racism nowdays is against white people, who pay for all the others. africans should have return to their countries when slavery was abolished, as soon as they were free, they shoukd return but most of them didn’t want, interesting. Among them they are racists like islamics, both the same. Than african peole cause problems in USA in Europe, In Asia butof course is always a racism case, of course. If a black police kills a white man, no one see any petition, but if it is the opposite oh oh oh, is racism. They just want do to all sort of crimes and get away with them without punishment. Father of 3, oh of course usually they don’t have money for one but the tax payers will pay for the family he fabricates as if there are not much more than enough blacks in the world. Yes there are continents who need to do a control on population and africa as well as asia are the ones.

  2. When shall the American Police stop acting as they are above the Law by killing their own fellow human been? It’s so disheartening and disgusting to take part of such destructive information, to not mention all the pain and sorrow the victims family, relatives and friends has to endure just do to a trigger happy cops lack of judgment and empathy. If we in Sweden experienced that rate of killing by our Police force, our government would put an end to it instantly.
